PREFACE 



Some years ago when I began to feel that I would like 
to leain who my ancestoi's were farther back than my 
grrandfather, 1 made some inquiries among my relatives 
as to what they knew concerning them. The best I could 
do was to learn my great-grandfathers name, beyond 
which was oblivion. Consequently, it was about two 
years before I was able to learn my line of descent and 
trace to my immigrant ancestor. At that time, little did 
I dream that eventually I should voluntarily assume the 
responsibility of editing a genealogy of the Todd Family, 
but as I worked into the matter, deeper and yet deeper, I 
could not learn of but just one person who had ever at- 
tempted to collect a record of the descendants of Christo- 
pher Todd as a whole, and he had recently died in the 
harness, leaving his data unpublished. I then negotiated 
with his heirs and soon thereafter, all the material that 
he had been years in collecting, came into my possession. 
Since then I have attempted to complete more of the 
branches to the present time. 

The result is now soon to be placed befoi'e the Todd 
Family for their inspection and perusual. My principle 
reason for this action is to preserve from absolute de- 
struction the data which has been years in preparing and 
with such infinite labor and zeal. 

However, the task has not been wholly without its 
compensations, as I have become somewhat acquainted 
with many people, who, otherwise I never should have 
known, and have become personally acquainted with a 
number of them. I have had many willing assistants 
who have given me valuable help and information con- 
cerning their particular branches of the family, and with 



such I shall always retain very pleasant memories. On 
the other hand, there are those who have not been enough 
interested in their ancestry to furnish me with informa- 
tion which was in their possession. Unfortunately, these 
are the very ones whose records will appear the most in- 
complete, which has given me much keen disappointment 
and it necessarily follows that those who have sent me the 
required information and have answered my inquiries, 
will appear much nearer complete and to date. It has 
been my ambition to complete every branch which has 
living descendants, but alas, I have failed. 

The foundation to this work was begun many years 
ago by the late Rev. John E. Todd formerly of New 
Haven, Conn., who did a vast amount of work in col- 
lecting the records, especially of the earlier generations 
contained herein. It is impossible to specify all to whom 
I am indebted for assistance rendered me in my part of 
completing this work. To all these, I wish to express 
my thanks, and that I appreciate all they have done for 
me. 

I do not claim this work to be perfect ; no doubt there 
are many errors, which, perhaps came about largely 
through transmission. When such imperfections are 
discovered I would be pleased to have the corrections or 
additions sent to me, as sooner or later a supplement may 
be required. 

This work is planned so that each generation is 
finished before the next one begins. Each person is 
numbered in rotation beginning with Christopher as 1. 
His oldest child is numbered 2, the next 3 and the last 
one is 7 which completes the first generation. Each per- 
son who has descendants, an * is placed before their num- 
ber thus, *2, which denotes that the number will appear 
in the succeeding generation in its proper place, the num- 
ber then appearing in the middle of the page, otherwise, 
all that is known of that particular person will be found 
when their number first appears. 

George Iru Todd. 
Northampton, Mass. 
January 1, 1920. 



INTRODUCTION 



Tod is the Scotch word for fox. In Scotland and 
the north of England a todhunter is a fox hunter. The 
name Todd is an altered form of the Scotch word tod. 
The shorter form of the name is therefore the original 
and correct one. The doubling of the final letter is a cor- 
ruption. But at the present time everywhere unless in 
Scotland and perhaps even there too, the corrupt form is 
the more common one. 

The first to assume the word as a surname was per- 
haps a keen sportsman. He followed the hounds, or may 
have been a fox hunter. Tod is a name occurring in the 
writings of WycliflFe, also Todman. We have other forms 
of the name, Todt or Todte and Todde, also the compounds 
Todcastle, Todenham and Todlebru. 

A good story is told of a market gardener of Middle- 
sex, who was brought before a magistrate for not having 
printed on his cart his name, his place of residence and 
the words "taxed cart." In defence, the gardener said 
that he had complied with the law in every particular, as 
the Court could judge from inspection of his cart, upon 
which was the following legend : 

"A Most Odd Act on a Taxed Cart." 

This looked startling, not to say contumacious, until 
it was explained that it could be rendered : 

"Amos Todd, Acton, a Taxed Cart." 

Among those who have helped to make the name 
illustrious, to mention but a few, one of the best known 
Irish scholars of his day — hewas bomin 1805 — was James 
Henthorn Todd, consulted both by statesmen and theolo- 
gians. Another was Henry John Todd who was editor of 
6 



6 INTRODUCTION 

Milton ; he also edited Johnson's dictionary, and added 
several thousand words. Robert Bentley Todd, the early 
part of the nineteenth century, was a physician of high 
repute, and his statue may be seen at King's College Hos- 
pital. David Todd had a world-wide reputation as an 
astronomer. Isaac Todhunter was a mathematician, 
whose treatises had an enormous circulation. 

Shall we also mention Mary Evans Todd, the "Mary" 
of Coleridge's verse? She was not a Todd by birth, to be 
sure, but the wife of one and the mother of another — the 
mother of Elliott D' Arcy Todd, of Yorkshire, which for 
centuries has been the stronghold, so to speak, of the 
Todds. Can there be any connection between the name 
of the family and the town in the West Riding of York- 
shire — Todmorden ? The town also dates back to Edward 
III, and even prior to his reign. 

In "Women of the Revolution" we read of Sarah, 
Adam Todd's wife. Their home was in Cliff Street, New 
York. When the British took possession of the city she 
left it, but quickly returned when she heard that a ser- 
vant which she had left in charge of her house was pass- 
ing herself off as the mistress and was taking boarders. 
She remained through the war, and with her daughters, 
was a ministering angel to prisoners and the wounded in 
hospitals. One of the latter had taken up its quarters in 
the Quaker Meeting House which was next door north of 
her house, in Queen street, and was used as a prison hos- 
pital during the war, and she often went in to cook for 
and nurse the sick. Her house was called "rebel head- 
quarters" by the British, and an officer said of her and 
her daughters : "They are the d — Rebels in New York." 

The men too played their part and played it well. 
Timothy Todd, of Vermont, a surgeon, was at the battle 
of Bennington and a member of the Governor's council, 
and several other of the Todd descendants of Christopher 
served during the war. Thomas Todd, of Virginia, was 
also a member of the Continental army ; his son Charles 
was one of the four aides who rendered Gen. Harrison 
most important services during his campaign and was 
afterward minister to Russia. The Kentucky branch of 



INTRODUCTION 7 

Todd family also has its war record. There were Lieut. 
Levi and his brother, Col. John, good and brave soldiers. 
Levi was the father of Robert, the father of Mrs. Abra- 
ham Lincoln. 

All the Todds have originally come from Scotland; 
but they have come by different roads, and some of them 
have been a long time on the way. For centuries, driven 
by persecution or lured by the hope of advantage, they 
have been with their fellow-countrymen, descending into 
England, or crossing the straits into the North of Ireland. 

For three or four hundred years the parish regis- 
ters in all the counties of England have contained many 
records of Todds. An ancient Yorkshire register records 
the marriage of Richard Tod and Mary Wod. This is 
poetic and beautiful. In such a family it must have been 
natural for the boys, when first learning to walk, to tod- 
dle, and for the girls, when old and fat, to waddle. 

With the practical union of Scotland and England 
under James I, the mutual political prejudices of the two 
countries began to abate. With the reformation in Eng- 
land and later the spread of independency and Presby- 
terianism their religious prejudices also disappeared. 
And the Scotch in England were mingled everywhere 
with the English. Consequently the two peoples became 
thoroughly amalgamated. The Todds in England have 
long since become thoroughly English and have lost the 
last trace of their Scottish heredity. With the Scotch in 
Ireland, or the Scotch-Irish as they are commonly but 
improperly called, the case is very different. There the 
Scotch have been segregated from the Irish, in a few 
Northern Counties; they have been strong advocates of 
William of Orange, and the protestant succession, while 
the Irish have been loyal to the Stuarts, so long as there 
were any to be loyal to, and since that to home-rule, or 
anything rather than the established government, and the 
Irish have been bigoted Roman Catholics, while the 
Scotch have been not less bigoted Presbyterians. From 
all this has developed a fierce antagonism, which has kept 
the races apart, and has manifested itself wherever even 
in foreign countries, Orangemen and Irishmen have 



8 INTRODUCTION 

"foregathered." These Todds, therefore, have no Irish 
blood, but are as purely Scotch as the people of Scotland 
itself. 

Of the nine distinct and so far as known wholly un- 
connected families of Todds in this country, three have 
come from Scotland direct, namely, the New York Todds, 
the SufReld, Connecticut Tods and (probably) the Phila- 
delphia Tods ; three have come from the North of Ireland, 
Viz., the Maryland Todds, the New Hampshire Todds, and 
the Pennsylvania Todds ; and three have come from Eng- 
land, Viz., the Massachusetts Todds, the New Haven, Con- 
necticut Todds and the Virginia Todds. Of these last 
three, the first two came from the republican or Puritan 
party, and the third from the royalist or Church of Eng- 
land party. Of all the Todds in this countiy the Vir- 
ginians were at first highest in social rank. 

The arms of the Todds, or of such as were authorized 
to bear them were, with trifling variations, three fox 
heads in red, in a shield, with a fox sitting, or running 
away with a goose, for a crest, and the motto, "Opertet 
Vivere" — "One must live" (even if he has to steal for it.) 

It must be admitted that the Todds have been better 
than their motto; but it is not pretended that the Todds 
in this country have any right, or wish, to make use of 
these "childish things," which the manhood of the world 
has put away. 

With a single exception the Todds have all come from 
the Highlands of Scotland. 

The original name of the Irish Todds was O'Shauagh, 
which is Irish for fox. In consequence of an early Eng- 
lish Parliment, which compelled the Irish to assume Eng- 
lish names, the family changed its name, the Leinster 
branch taking the name Fox and the northern, Todd, or 
Wolfson, corrupted into Wilson. It appears from this 
that a portion of the Irish Todds are of Irish origin. All 
other Todds are Scotch. 

They have come to this country by three different 
channels. First there are the Scotch Todds, who have 
come directly from Scotland. 

In the latter part of the first half of the eighteenth 



INTRODUCTION 9 

century, probably between 1730 and 1740, Adam Todd 
landed in New York City, coming direct from Scotland, 
and still wearing the kilt and the tartan. He was twice 
married. He had one daughter, Margaret, by the first 
wife, and three children, Adam, James, and Sarah, by 
the second. Few of the descendants bearing the family 
name, attained to distinction. But the female descendants 
became the wives and mothers of eminent men. Sarah, 
the youngest daughter of Adam, married John Jacob 
Astor, a native of Waldorf Duchy of Baden, who eventu- 
ally acquired an immense fortune by trading in furs in 
the Northwest, and by the rise in value of property in 
New York. In 1848 he founded the Astor Library in 
New York at an expense of $400,000. He also established 
still more useful institutions in his native city. John 
Jacob and Sarah (Todd) Astor had several children, of 
whom William B., known to be one of the richest men of 
his time, and who doubled the Astor Library, and Col. 
John Jacob junior, are the best known. Magdalen, the 
eldest daughter married first Gov. Bentzen, a native of 
Denmark, and Gov. of the island of Santa Cruz, and after 
his death Rev. John Bristed, of Dorchester, England. 
Their son, Cliarles Astor Bristed graduated at Trinity 
College Cambridge, England, and wrote a book about the 
union of life which has been much read, and became a 
literary man, writing under the nome de plume of "Carl 
Benson." It is sufficient to show that the Todd family 
came to be intimately connected with most of the promi- 
nent families of New York, that their records contain the 
names of Astor, Brevort, Springier, Sedgwick, Dodge, 
Vanderbilt, Aspinwall, Piatt, Kane, Roosevelt, and others. 

Next there are the Irish Todds, a part of whom came 
originally from Scotland. In the early part of the last 
century Robert Todd came from County Antrim, and 
settled on wild lands in the interior of Pennsylvania, 
whence his descendants spread into New Jersey, Carolina, 
Georgia and Kentucky. 

It was into a branch of this Irish stock that Presi- 
dent Abraham Lincoln married, Mrs. Lincoln being the 
great-granddaughter of Robert Todd, who was a native of 
Pennsylvania and a general in the Revolutionary Army. 



10 INTRODUCTION 

Robert and Andrew Todd came over first from Ire- 
land. Robert the Grandfather or Great-grandfather of 
Mary Todd, afterward Mrs. Lincoln, settled in Penn- 
sylvania and Andrew at Todds Point below Cambridge, 
Md. Michael Todd and Levin Todd came over a few 
years later and settled near Andrew. Hugh Todd may 
have been their father. Their grandfather's name was 
John Todd. 

James Todd and his wife were born in Scotland, but 
emigrated to the North of Ireland where all their children 
were born. These children were Alexander, Samuel, 
Elizabeth, and Andrew. Alexander and Samuel were 
both of them graduates of the university of Edinburgh. 
Samuel was never married. The others were all married 
in Ireland. James the husband and father died in Ire- 
land. In 1720 his widow and all her children and child- 
ren-in-law arrived in Londonderry, N. H., and settled 
there. The youngest son, Andrew distinguished himself 
in the French wars of 1744 and 1755, in which he served 
as Colonel of the provincial forces, and was one of the 
marked men of the time. The descendants of this family 
seem to have confined themselves for the most part to the 
region in which they first settled. 

Lastly there are the English Todds, who have come 
to this country by way of England, where they have been 
known at least, so far back as the eleventh century. Upon 
their entrance into England some of the Todds seem to 
have retained their Scotch name, while others exchanged 
it for its English equivalent. 

Hence the Todds and the Foxes belong to the same 
stock, and have always borne the same arms. The Todds 
seem to have settled first in Yorkshire where the name is 
common to this day. 

There was a John Todde, who was high sheriff of 
York in 1390; and also Sir William Tod, who was high 
sheriff in 1477, and Lord mayor ten years later. Till 
within comparatively recent times there was two inscrip- 
tions in preservation on the walls of York, which the 
antiquary Leland thus describes — 

"Under a piece of indifferent sculpture of a senator

a table under the city's arks, is — "A Domini M. CCCC. 

L. XXXVII. Sir William Tod, Knight L Mayre 

this wal was mayde in his dayes Lx yerds." 

Among the more eminent of the Yorkshire Todds 
was Rev. Robert Todd, a dissenting minister of Leeds. 
Among other notices of him it is chronicled that during 
the Great Plague "he preached repeatedly and impress- 
ively on Hezekiah's boil." 

There was also a Sir William Todd, who was High 
Sheriff of York under Charles I, in 1625. 

There are in this country three distinct families of 
Yorkshire Todds. One of these sprung from Thomas 
Todd, who settled in Virginia, whence his descendants 
have spread into Kentucky. 

In 1664 Thomas Todd came from England and settled 
in Ware Parish, Gloucester Co., Va., bringing with him 
his wife and one or two children born in England. He 
was a ship master and died at sea in 1676. His wife was 
Ann Gorsuch, dau, of Rev. John Gorsuch, Rector of Walk- 
ham, Hertfordshire and his wife Anne, dau. of Sir Wil- 
liam Lovelace. Their children were Thomas, Christo- 
pher, James, William, Philip, Joanna, Anne, Frances and 
Isabella. One of the descendants of Capt. Thomas Todd, 
the eldest child, was the distinguished jurist, Thomas 
Todd of Kentucky, who after filling the highest judicial 
offices in that State was appointed by President Jeffer- 
son one of the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court 
of the United States, and held that office from 1807 till 
his death in 1824. His abilities and character won him 
the personal friendship of Chief Justice Marshall, and of 
the foremost men in the country. His eldest son, Charles 
Scott Todd was graduated at William and Mary College, 
practiced law in Frankfort, Ky. In the war of 1812 he was 
appointed Secretary of State of Kentucky by Gov. Madi- 
son ; he was sent on a confidential mission to Colombia by 
the United States Government in 1820, and was appointed 
minister to Russia by President Tyler in 1841. Judge 



12 INTRODUCTION 

Todd's second wife was Lucy Payne sister of Mrs. Presi- 
dent Madison; but when he married her she was the 
widow of George Steptoe Washington, youngest son (by 
the fourth of his five wives,) of Samuel Washington, 
brother of George Washington first President of the 
United States. Isabella the youngest child of Capt. 
Thomas Todd the immigrant, married John Madison the 
son of a wealthy planter of the same name, who was the 
original immigrant of that family. They had two sons, 
Ambrose and John, the latter was the father of the Right 
Rev. James Madison, President of William and Mary Col- 
lege, and first Protestant Episcopal Bishop of Virginia, 
and of his brother George Madison, Gov. of Kentucky. 
Ambrose married Frances Taylor sister of Zackary Tay- 
lor, who was the grandfather of Gen. Zackery Taylor, the 
thirteenth President of the United States. The wife of 
President Madison was Dorothea (commonly called Dol- 
ly) Payne, though when he married her she was the widow 
of John Todd, a promising and wealthy young lawyer 
in Philadelphia. She and her sister Lucy (Judge Todd's 
second wife) were daughters of John Payne and Mary 
Coles, a first cousin of Patrick Henry, and grand-daugh- 
ter of John Payne who came to Va. early in the eighteenth 
century, and Anna Fleming, grand-daughter of Sir 
Thomas Fleming, one of the early settlers of Jamestown, 
Va. Their family belonged to the society of Friends, and 
their mother and Grandmother had been as celebrated as 
they were for beauty and charming manners. The Jef- 
ferson and Madison families were very intimate, and as 
President Jefferson was a widower, and his daughters 
were married and had duties elsewhere, he was accus- 
tomed to ask Mrs. Madison to preside at the social func- 
tions in the White House. For President Jefferson's two 
terms, and for her husbands two terms, therefore, in 
other words for sixteen years she was virtually mistress 
of the presidential mansion. During her long tenure of 
this elevated position she became widely known and uni- 
versally admired and beloved. In some respects she was 
the most remarkable woman which this country has pro- 
duced. 



INTRODUCTION 13 

The second family sprung from John Todd, who 
came to Chai'leston, Massachusetts, in 1637, and two 
years later settled in Rowley, Mass. His antecedents are 
not yet discovered except that he came from Yorkshire. 
The Rowley Todds are found in Massachusetts, Vermont 
and the West and have furnished a general in the Revolu- 
tionary army and many men of ability and distinction. 

The third family sprung from Christopher Todd, 
who was one of the original settlers of the New Haven 
colony, in Connecticut, in 1639. He came from Ponte- 
fract, West Riding, Yorkshire. 

The register of the old parish church in Pontefract 
is still in existence and contains the records of the mar- 
riage of William Todd and Isabel Rogerson, the grand- 
parents, and William Todd and Katharine Ward, the 
parents of Christopher. 

William Todd the youngest "was killed in sort of a 
duel," when his son Christopher was but an infant, and 
Christopher was but about twenty years old when with 
his wife, Grace Middlebrook, he joined the New Haven 
colony. Here he became a farmer, miller and baker. He 
seems to have been at first one of the less prominent of 
the colonists. He signed the "General Agreement" mod- 
estly with his mark and quietly took his allotment in the 
"Yorkshire quarter" and when the "meeting-house" was 
"dignified" he had his place assigned him, not in one of the 
honorable "middle seates," but in the "third side seate" 
though "sister Tod" — for they worshipped in those days 
"the men apart and their wives apart" — was a little more 
fortunate. It was not long, however, before Christopher 
Todd began to make another kind of mark. He bought a 
grist-mill, which the town had built where Whitney's gun 
factory now stands; and it was long known as "Todd's 
mill." The records of the "General Court" show that he 
was continually adding to his real estate. He even rose 
to the dignity of a "viewer of fences." In 1650 he bought 
an acre and a half on Elm Street in the more aristocratic 
"London quarter" on a part of which St. Thomas's 
Church now stands, and occupied a house on the eastern 
part of it. This ground, known in after-times as "the 



14 INTRODUCTION 

Blue Meeting house Lot" remained in the family fox- 
nearly a hundred years. 

Christopher Todd died at a good old age, leaving a 
will which is a model for sense and wisdom. He had 
three sons and three daughters of whom the whole earth 
around and in distant states has been overspread. 

Of the daughters, Mercy, the eldest, married John 
Bassett, and became the mother of a large family ; Grace, 
the second, seems to have been mentally deficient, and 
though married, was soon, deserted by her husband and 
was specially provided for in her father's will, as "incom- 
petent to take care of herself or any estate." 

Mary, the youngest daughter, was married to Isaac 
Turner, son of Captain Nathaniel Turner, "the right arm 
of the New Haven colony," who afterward perished in 
the "Phantom Ship." Her husband's sister Mary was 
the wife of Thomas Yale, the mother of Elihu Yale, the 
founder of Yale College. 

Of the sons, each became the head of a large branch 
of the family. The descendants of Samuel, the second son, 
have been the most numerous. One of these was Rev. 
Samuel Todd, the impulsive but able first pastor of the 
North Parish in Waterbury, Connecticut. 

Another was Rev. Abraham Todd, who was for forty 
years pastor of the West Church at Horseneck, Green- 
wich, Connecticut, which stood on the hill afterward 
made famous by Putman's desperate ride. Many amus- 
ing stories are told of this simple minded but respected 
preacher — 

"Although a general favorite throughout the whole 
of his ministry he may have had some, though few 
enemies. It is related that during his ministiy many of 
his hearers were outspoken men, even expressing them- 
selves publicly during worship, as to the merits or de- 
merits of the doctrines advanced. Among this class of 
persons was one Palmer, who was present during the 
service on an occasion when an Indian missionary 
preached to Mr. Todd's congregation. He preached 
fluently, and we presume well, and so great an impression 
did his logic make upon Palmer, that at the close of the 



I 



INTRODUCTION 15 

sermon he exclaimed with great vehemence "Lets swap 
Todd and buy the Injin; he does a good deal the best." 
Mr. Todd himself was present on the occasion. The 
length of his pastorate, however, is a sufficient guarantee 
of his ability, as well as his excellence of character. 

Another preacher of this line of descent, whose 
worth is established by similar evidence, was Rev. Am- 
brose S. Todd, D. D., rector for nearly forty years of St. 
James Church, in Stamford, Conn. His father before 
him had been a clergyman of the Episcopal Church, and 
he inherited more than the abilities and succeeded to more 
than the reputation and influence of his father. In all 
branches of the family in every generation the Todds 
have been inclined to the ministry and have risen to 
eminence in the clerical profession more than in any 
other, unless the medical. 

To the line of Samuel Todd, however, belong George 
Todd, late Judge of the Supreme Court of Ohio, with his 
son, ex-governor of the same State; also Edward Todd, 
of New York city, who has won fame, not by his pen but 
by his pens. 

The descendants of Michael, the youngest son of 
Christopher Todd, have also been very numerous. Like 
the descendants of the other sons, they have been mostly 
farmers. 

One of them, S. Edwards Todd, is well known in our 
own day as a writer on agriculture. Another descendant 
of this line, in a former generation was Doctor Eli Todd, 
of Farmington, Conn., who was one of the founders of 
the Retreat for the Insane at Hartford, Ct. and acquired 
celebrity in connection with it. Ex-governor James E. 
English is also a descendant of a female branch of this 
line. 

The descendants of John, the eldest son of Christo- 
pher Todd, continued for a time to till the paternal acres 
at New Haven ; but at length one of his grandsons named 
Jonathan feeling the hereditary ministerial impulse, was 
graduated at Yale College in 1732 and ordained in the 
fall of the following year when scarcely twenty years 
old "having that part of the Church of Christ committed

unto me which is in the East Guilford" now Madison, 
Conn. His pastorate continued for more than half a 
century. He was naturally accompanied in his migration 
from New Haven by his younger and only surviving 
brother, Timothy, who settled near him and became a 
merchant and magistrate, the father of a large family 
and the grandfather of Rev. John E. Todd who compiled 
the major part of this genealogy. He too was a graduate 
of Yale.

EXTRACTS FROM AN OLD FAMILY RECORD 

Mr. William Todd was born in Pontefract, in York, 
in Great Britian and had two children, Christopher and 
Mary, and was killed in a sort of duel. 

Mr. Michael Middlebrook lived at Hold Mills, who 
had five children, Matthew, Michael, Mary, Hester and 
Grace. Mr. Edward Wigglesworth married Hester, and 
the above named Christopher Todd married Grace. 

From these documents it appears that William Todd 
and Isabel Rogerson married Sept. 24, 1592, had two 
sons, William, who was baptized June 29th 1593, and 
John, who was baptized Oct. 18, 1594.

William Todd 2nd, married Katherine Ward May 22, 
1614, and had two children, Maiy, baptized Oct. 14th 
1614, and Christopher, baptized Jan. 12, 1617, and was 
killed in York, England, in a duel less than four months 
after the birth of his son Christopher, having been buried 
May 8th 1617. 

John Todd who was baptized Oct. 18, 1594, was born at 
Pontefract, York County, England, and married in 1620, 
Alice Clayton of Bradford, York County, England, where 
their son John was born and who married in 1643, 
Susanna Hunt who was born at Bradford, County of 
York, in 1621. He emigrated to America, settling first 
in Charlestown, Mass. and shortly afterwards went to 
Rowley, Mass. where he became a prominent citizen. He 
was elected as a representative from that town to the 
General Court. They had the following children, viz. : 

John, b. 1655 ; left descendants. 

Catharine, b. 1658. 

Thomas, b. 1665. 

Timothy, b. 1668. 

Samuel, b. 1670. 

James, b. 1672. 
It is thought probable that William Todd who mar- 
ried Isabel Rogerson was a son of Reginald Todd, free- 
man of York, 1605, and a collateral descendant of Sir 
William Todd, Lord Mayor of York, 1487. 

Christopher married Grace Middlebrook, daughter 
of Michael Middlebrook of Hold Mills, Yorkshire — her 
sister Hester being married to Mr. Edward Wiggles- 
worth. 

As the recoi'd was taken down from the lips of an 
old woman, a long time ago, it is possible that "Hold 
Mills" was "Old Mills." The title "Mr." indicates 
superior position, as also does the stoiy of a duel. 

Christopher Todd and Edward Wigglesworth and 
their wives came to this country together and settled in 
New Haven Colony. They were not among the first 
settlers, 1638, but were among the first additions. Their 
names appear several times in the records of the Colony. 
Edward Wigglesworth was a cripple and a shoemaker.

18 INTRODUCTION 

The somewhat famous poet was one of his descendants 
and the family have been somewhat distinguished. 

Christopher Todd became a planter, miller and 
baker. He owned several tracts of ground. His mill 
was where the gun factory now stands at Whitneyville. 
In 1650 he bought the house built by Jasper Crane, where 
St. Thomas' Church now stands on Elm Street, and the 
place remained in the family for a hundred years. He 
seems to have been a bright, level headed business man, 
but without much education. His will, signed with his 
mark, is still to be seen among the New Haven County 
records. 



TODD GENEALOGY 



1 

Christopher Todd', was born at Pontefract, West 
Riding, Yoi'kshire, England, baptized Jan. 12, 1617, died 
April 23, 1686, at New Haven, Conn., married Grace, 
daughter of Michael Middlebrook, of "Hold Mills" York- 
shire, England. 

He was barely twenty years of age, when he and his 
young bride sailed with Mr. Davenports company on the 
Hector, probably sometime in April 1637. Two months 
was perhaps, the average time consumed in sailing from 
London to Boston in vessels of that day. The Hector 
arrived in Boston on the 26th of June 1637. The immi- 
grants received a warmer welcome than ordinary. The 
eminence of "the famous Mr. Davenport" and the opu- 
lence of the merchants who accompained him, gave to this 
company, in the estimation of the colonists, an unusual 
value. Most of the company remained in Boston or the 
vicinity during the following winter, many of them 
having found employment suitable to their several 
vocations. Though somewhat scattered, some finding 
lodgings and employment in one place and some in an- 
other, they were still an organized company. 

On the 30th of March, the leader of the company and 
most of the followers embarked at Boston, having for- 
mally decided to fix their plantation at "Quinnipiac" on 
long Island Sound. After a tedious voyage of "about a 
fortnight they arrived at their desired port." 
19 



20 TODD FAMILY 

It was perhaps, a peculiarity of New Haven, that 
cellars were used for temporary habitations. They were, 
as the name suggests, partially under ground and per- 
haps, in most cases on a hill side. On the Sabbath, they 
worshipped under an oak tree, near the landing place: 
and Mr. Davenport, in a sermon on Matthew IV, I, 
"insisted on the temptation of the wilderness, made such 
observations, and gave such directions and exhortations, 
as were pei'tinent to the present condition of his hearers." 

The English, soon after their arrival at Quinnipiac, 
observed a day of extraordinary humiliation, when they 
formed a social compact, mutually pi'omising "that as in 
matters that contain the gathering and ordering of a 
church, so likewise, in all public offices, which concern 
civil order, as choice of magistrates, and officers making 
and repealing of laws, dividing allotments of inheritance, 
and all things of a like nature," they would all of them be 
ordered by those rules which the scripture holds forth. 
For more than a year, they had no other civil or ecclesi- 
astical organization for the transaction of business and, 
if we may judge of that year by the years that followed, 
there were penalties inflicted on evil-doers; but if any 
individuals were authorized to act as magistrates, the 
record of their appointment has not been discovered. 

The plantation covenant, like the compact signed in 
the cabin of the Mayflower, was a provisional arrange- 
ment of men, who finding themselves beyond the actual 
jurisdiction of any earthly government, attempted to 
govern themselves according to the law of God. The 
elective franchise was limited to church members. 

At first, Christopher Todd seems to have been one of 
the less prominent of the colonists. He signed the 
"General Agreement" modestly, with his mark and 
quietly took his allotment in the "Yorkshire Quarter," 
and when the meeting house was "dignified," he had his 
place assigned him, not in one of the honorable "Middle 
seats," but in "the third seate on the side," though "Sister 
Tod" — for they worshipped in those days, "the men apart 
and their wives apart" — was a little more fortunate, had 
one of the more honorable "Middle seates." It was not 
long however, before Christopher Todd began to make 



FIRST GENERATION 2] 

another kind of mark. He bought a grist mill, which 
was the first mill erected by the town of New Haven, "at 
the falls over the trap dyke at the east end of Mill Rock, 
two miles from the center of the town." This was at first, 
hired and then bought of the town, before the year 1686. 
This mill stood on or near where Whitney's Gun factory 
now stands and was long known as Todd's mill, and after 
1798 passed into the possession of Eli Whitney, who 
erected there, the first establishment in America for 
manufacturing fire arms. 

The records of the "General Court," show that he 
was "continually adding to his real estate." He even 
rose to the dignity of a "Viewer of fences." 

In 1650, he bought of Jasper Crane, an acre and a 
half in the "London Quarter" with the buildings thereon. 
There he passed the remaining years of his life. This 
lot, which was on Elm street, between Church and Orange 
streets remained in the possession of he and his descen- 
dants for nearly a hundred years. It was later known as 
the "Blue Meeting house Lot," on account of the interior 
of the building, which the "New Lights" erected upon it, 
being decorated in that color. St. Thomas's Church now 
stands on a part of it. 

Mr. Todd was a farmer, miller and baker and ac- 
quired considerable property, some of his land being re- 
mote from his residence. 

He lived to be a little over sixty-nine years of age, 
having died in April 1686, leaving a will which is a model 
for sense and wisdom, and may be seen in the Probate 
records at New Haven, Ct. 

He had three sons and three daughters, the descen- 
dants of whom the whole country around and in distant 
states, has been overspread. Of the sons, John, the 
eldest and his descendants for a long time continued to 
till the paternal acres at New Haven. Samuel, the second 
son succeeded his father in the grist-mill. His descen- 
dants have been the most numerous. Michael, the third 
son also had a large family and many descendants 
many of whom have been farmers. Mercy, the eldest 
daughter married John Bassett and became the mother 



22 TODD FAMILY 

of a large family. Grace, the second daughter seems to 
have been mentally deficient, and though she married 
Richard Mattock, was soon deserted by him, and was 
especially provided for in her father's will as being 
"incompetent to take care of her self or any estate." 
Mary, the youngest daughter was married to Isaac, son 
of Capt. Nathaniel Turner.

age she was called before the court and sentenced 
to be "whipt for some improprieties of conduct." 
She seems to have been mentally unsound. Soon 
after her marriage she was deserted by her hus- 
band. Her father, in his will, provided for her as 
one being "incompetent to take care of herself or 
any estate."

tor of the church in East Guilford, now Madison, 
Conn., Oct. 24, 1733, where he remained until 
his death in 1791, an exceptionally long pastorate 
of 58 years, all spent in one place. Graduated 
from Yale, 1732. 
"He was a distinguished scholar, and a judicious cri- 
tic in the learned languages : had given consider- 
able attention to philosophy, and had thoroughly 
studied history, both ancient and modern As- 
siduous in his application to reading, and prepar- 
ations for the sanctuary, making the sacred ora- 
cles his guide, he fed his hearers with knowledge 
and understanding. . .Christ Jesus and him cruci- 
fied was the sum and substance of his preaching. 
He had a happy talent at conversation. In times 



THIRD GENERATION 27 

of uncommon sickness and mortality he devoted 
almost the whole of his time to visiting, and pray- 
ing with the sick and dying, and administering 
consolation to the afflicted. A clear discernment 
and sound judgement made him an able coun- 
sellor. He was singularly mild and amiable in 
his disposition, clothed with humility and plain- 
ness. At his death, not one of the sacred order in 
the State had been of so long standing in it. Not 
one head of a family was then living, of all who 
were living at the time of his ordination. Dur- 
ing his ministry he buried about twice his whole 
congregation. The calmness and resignation for 
which he was distinguished under all the afflic- 
tions of life of the gospel, were conspicuous in 
his most painful visitation through the last 
year of his life. Having uniformly and eminently 
exemplified the spirit of Christianity, he closed 
life with serenity, with peace, with joy, with 
hope." 

From his sermon of Rev. James Dana, D. D., quoted 
and amplified by Rev. John Elliott. 

"My great uncle was a plain, primitive clergyman in 
olden times. He lived a veiy long quiet life, 
dwelling among his own people, equally prim- 
itive. He seldom went out of his parish, and 
though he was a great student and thorough scho- 
lar yet in the things of this world he was a child 
in simplicity. It so happened that there was a 
vessel cast ashore near his house, and from the 
wreck several Africans, directly from Guinea, 
emerged. I never knew all the circumstances: 
but they came into his hands, and my uncle made 
pets of them all. He thought of instructing and 
educating them, and sending them back to Africa, 
and he thought of making them school-teachers 
here, and he had divers schemes for their eleva- 
tion. But they were full grown people, could not 
speak a word of English, were immensely stupid, 
and never having been brought up to work, were 



28 TODD FAMILY 

anything but industrious. He gave them Scrip- 
ture names, Cush, Tamar and the like. Cush was 
the oldest, uniting simplicity and cunning so that 
it was often difficult to say on which principle he 
was acting. His simplicity always had his own 
ends in view. Among his exploits, he got up a 
company of boys as soldiers. He made them long 
sticks for guns, but — a drum ! He set his heart 
on having a drum for his company. In those 
days gentlemen wore small-clothes and white-top 
boots. My uncle was nice in his dress, and no 
one in his parish had his head in more perfect 
wig, or his feet in more becoming white-top boots. 
At great expense and pains he had procured a 
side of white leather for his boots, and laid it up 
carefully. All at once the leather was gone ; but 
a smothered sound from something called a drum 
among the boy-soldiers revealed the secret. Cush 
had cut it up to make two drum heads: when 
called to account, he gravely assured his master 
that his company were delighted, and said, "the 
minister had more patriotism than all de gemmen 
in de town." 

By Rev. John Todd, D. D. 

By his will, Mr. Todd emancipated all his servants, 
making at the same time sufficient provision for 
them to encourage them to support themselves. 
"I do Declare my will in respect of my Servants 
and Slaves: I have long been convinced in my 
own mind that the Enslaving of the Africans 
brought from Africa, or those Born in this coun- 
try, is unjust: and it is one of the sins of the 
land, and would Endeavour to free my Estate 
from the Cry of such a sin against it : and there- 
fore do order and will in the manner and form 
which is following."

March 22, 1739, passed the remaining days of his life, 
and died there. He was the only settler in the town of 
Stamford by the name of Todd, at that time, and inter- 
esting entries may be found in the town records, of the 
different tracts of land bought by him at "the South end 
of ye Long Ridge." He seems to have inherited a taste 
for the milling industry, for now (1914) there are ruins 
of two mills at Long Ridge, one for grain, the other a 
saw-mill, both owned and operated by him during his 
residence there. He became one of the leading and in- 
fluencial men of that region.

"Blessed with good intellectual parts, 

Well skilled in two important arts, 

Nobly he filled his double station, 

Both of a preacher and physician. 

To cure men's sicknesses and sins. 

He took unwearied care and pains, 

And strove to make his patient whole. 

Throughout, in body and in soul. 

He loved his God, loved to do good. 

To all his friends vast kindness showed. 

Nor could his enimies exclaim! 

And say he was not kind to them. 

His labors met a sudden close, 

Now he enjoys a sweet repose. 

And when the just to life shall rise, 

Among the first he'll mount the skies."

ordained May 7, 1740, as the first minister at Waterbury, 
Conn., Northbuiy Parish; dismissed Aug., 1764; instal- 
led pastor at Plymouth, 1766; removed to Lanesborough, 
Mass., remaining there two years; organized First 
Church at Adams, Mass. and remained there as pastor 
until 1778 ; Moved to Orford, N. H. where he died. 

"He possessed a mind of more than ordinary strength, 
and great decision of character. His religious sentiments 
and feelings were strictly evangelical. The revivals of 
1740, he warmly approved and exerted himself to pro- 
mote." 



44 TODD FAMILY 

From the History of Berkshire County, Mass. 

It was his approval of these revivals which led to his 
dismissal from Northbury. His church became Episco- 
palian. 

"He was a clergyman of much note. I shall not forget 
how he used to shake his large white wig, when any of 
my good mothers little flock made a mistake in the old 
Westminister Catechism." 

From The Foote Genealogy, by Erastus Foote. 

After repeated attempts and failures, the people of 
Plymouth were at last successful in being separated from 
Waterbury, by the October session of the General Court, 
1739, to be known and called the Parish of Northbury 
The society thus formed, at once set about settling a min- 
ister, and at a meeting of the society. Rev. Samuel Todd 
was selected, being ordained on the 7th day of May 1740. 
It is probable that Mr. Todd united with the North Haven, 
Ct. church during the pastorate of Rev. Isaac Stiles, 
father of President Stiles, of Yale. His family were of a 
religious character, as is proved by preserved relations 
or memorials of its members, in the days when each 
church member wrote out his or her confession of faith; 
that of his sister Susannah, afterwards wife of Caleb 
Humaston, recounts the wickedness of her rebellion 
against God, and how, when awakened to the sense of her 
sin, the counsels of Rev. Mr. Stiles and the death of an 
aunt were blessed to her conversion. 

Mr . Todd graduated at Yale, under President 
Williams, in 1734, at the age of seventeen, six of the 
fourteen in his class becoming ministers. A lately dis- 
covered document shows that he received and rejected a 
call to another church before he was ordained at North- 
bury, May 7, 1740. He brought his wife on a pillion be- 
hind him, or possibly on another horse, into this wilder- 
ness, where there was a small, feeble, scattered, but de- 
voted flock, situated somewhat similiar to the first Pil- 
grims at Plymouth, Mass. There were only bridle-paths 
through the woods then, and the streams had to be forded, 
the first cart bridge across the Naugatuck, at Thomaston, 
not being built till after 1747, 



FOURTH GENERATION 45 

Mr. Todd's promised house was not begun on his 
arrival, and he set up house on Town Hill, where the cel- 
lar hole is now seen in the lot near Jason Fenn's, and 
where three old apple trees lately stood of an orchard set 
out by him ; this was near his good deacon Moses Blakes- 
lee, who had lately arrived from New Haven with his 
fourteen children. A spring flows near the old cellar 
hole, where tradition says Mr. Todd's first child, little 
Alathea, was drowned; near the tombstone of her sister 
Lucy, who died June 9, 1752, is an unmarked grave which 
is doubtless that of little Alathea, said to be the first 
person buried there. After two or three years delay, 
the society built Mr. Todd a house in Thomaston, which 
stood on the top of the hill where Mrs. Williams built 
later, on the road running north, which turned off from 
the river road at Mr. Grilley's corner. It is not known 
how long he lived there but he moved over to Plymouth 
Hill when the church was there and the people lived here; 
he had moved before 1746-47. His house was in the 
garden near Riley Ives' house, and is remembered by the 
old people as the Evans House, where Eli Terry, the 
father of clock-making, began house-keeping with one 
chair apiece for himself and wife, and one cup and saucer. 

The great revival under President Edwards roused 
the New England churches from the cold formalism that 
grew out of the union of the church and the state and 
other causes, and Mr. Todd went to study it at Stock- 
bridge, probably by the advise of Joseph Bellamy, settled 
two years before at Bethlehem, a great friend of Ed- 
wards, and then in the midst of a religious revival, in 
which every man, woman, and child in the parish was 
under more or less religious concern. When Mr. Todd 
returned, established prayer meetings, and labored with 
souls, many of his congregation rebelled against him, and 
abandoned his preaching. There was almost temporal 
trouble. The secession weakened the society, leaving 
half the number to do the work, to build Mr. Todd's house 
and a meeting house ; there were only a handful of mem- 
bers left, and they were poor, just building their own 
houses and clearing their farms. But they did not break 



46 TODD FAMILY 

down under their heavy burden, and established the so- 
ciety on firm foundations. 

Rev. Mr. Todd's house was built slowly, and in his 
first year he gave in twenty pounds of his salary towards 
it ; but it was finished by December, 1742. 

From the History of Plymouth, Conn, by Francis 
Atwater. 

His name appears among those of the first proprie- 
tors of East Hoosac, which was, a year after the surren- 
der of the British at Saratoga, incorporated Adams, in 
honor of Samuel Adams, the "Father of the American 
Revolution," on October 15, 1778. At the first town- 
meeting, the Baptist and Quaker vote won the day and 
Rev. Mr. Todd of the First Congregational Church re- 
ceived a minority. He was requested to relinquish his 
rights to the minister's lot 48, granted to him for life in 
1766 by the General Court. However, he did not give up 
his rights to his farm, and this resulted in religious and 
political controversies between the settlers of the South 
Village and the North Village until the town was divided.

ver) Dickerman, who was born May 19, 1709, died July 
21, 1777. She was a sister of Mary Dickerman, wife of 
his cousin Michael Todd. He was a graduate of Yale 



48 TODD FAMILY 

College of the class of 1727. He was ordained in 1733, 
pastor of the second or West society at Greenwich, Conn. 
at Horseneck, the church having been located on the hill 
down which Gen. Putnam later made his famous escape. 
Here Mr. Todd remained forty years or till his death. 

"In 1732, the Church extended a call to Rev. Abraham 
Todd, who accepted the call, and during the next year was 
duly installed. Mr. Todd was then a young man, having 
just finished his theological studies. Of his character, 
the duration of his ministerial office over a single church 
is, perhaps, a sufficient indication. He is said to have 
been of a mild, easy disposition, and many anecdotes are 
handed down to us by tradition concerning him. Al- 
though a general favorite throughout the whole period 
of his ministry, he may, like others, have had some 
though few, enemies. It is related that during his min- 
istry, many of his hearers were outspoken men, even ex- 
pressing themselves publicly during worship, as to the 
merits or demerits of the doctrines advanced. Among 
this class of persons was one Palmer, who was present 
during the service on an occasion when an Indian mission- 
ary preached to Mr. Todd's congregation. He preached 
fluently, and we presume, well; and so great an impres- 
sion did his logic and eloquence make upon Palmer, that 
he exclaimed, at the close of the sermon, with great vehe- 
mence, "Let's swap Todd, and buy the Injin; he does a 
good deal the best." Mr. Todd hiniself was present. In 
the old French war, "the inhabitants gave of their sub- 
stance for the support of this war ; and the ladies of the 
various towns formed associations for the clothing of the 
soldiers. Mrs. Abraham Todd was a president of such an 
association in Greenwich." "In 1773 occured the death of 
Mr. Todd, until which time he was pastor of the church 
in the West Society of Greenwich. For a period of more 
than forty years he had enjoyed the confidence of his 
people, adding to his flock. Many laughable ditties ai-e 
related concerning him, which only show a warm heart 
and an innocent life. Unambitious and unpresuming, 
none of his people seem to have disliked him." "He was 
buried in the old burying ground in Davis's lane. In 1769 



FOUKTH GENERATION 49 

the society by vote "empowered Mr. Todd to desire one or 
more persons to tune the Psalm, as he shall see proper." 

From Mead's History of Greenwich, Conn. 

In 1732-33 Abraham Todd is called of New Haven, 
Conn., with a deed to Isaac Jones. In 1733 of Greenwich, 
Conn., in a deed of land in Governors Quarter, New Ha- 
ven, to Michael Todd. In 1740 he sold dwelling house 
and lot in New Haven, that was Jonah Todd's late of New 
Haven, deceased, to Thomas Wilmot; in 1741 land in 
Governors Quarters to heirs of Francis Brown. 

His wife survived him as appears by a deed in 1775 
from Hannah, widow of Abraham Todd, of Greenwich, 
Conn., to Leveret Stevens, of land conveyed to me by my 
husband Abraham Todd.

The compiler of the Tuttle Genealogy makes the 
claim that the above mentioned Benjamin Todd, who mar- 
ried Lois Tuttle, left a posthumous child who was named 
BenjaminTodd, and gives the date of his birth as being in 
1756. Should this prove to be true, the latter would have 
been but a very few months old, when his mother married 
second Dec. 9, 1756, James Atwater. It would seem to 
me, reasonably safe to say that the compiler of the Tuttle 
Genealogy would have tried to be sure that his statement 
was correct before he published the fact that Lois Tuttle 
did have a child by her first marriage. He also states 
that Lois Tuttle married James Atwater, Oct. 21, 1756, 
instead of Dec. 9, 1756 as stated in the Atwater Gene- 
alogy. The remaining six children are mentioned speci- 
fically as being Atwater's the name of each child being 
written in full. On the other hand, the compiler of the 
Atwater Genealogy appears to be convinced that all of 
Lois Tuttle's children were the issue of her second mar- 
riage, and to corroborate this view, is the fact that the 



FOURTH GENERATION 53 

descendants of Lois Turtle's first child call themselves 
Atwater's to this day. 

It is neither the intention nor the desire of the com- 
piler of this genealogy, to include any who do not right- 
fully belong there. And after carefully considering all 
the circumstances in the case, I am of the opinion that the 
oldest child of Lois Tuttle was a posthumous child, issue 
by her marriage to Benjamin Todd. This would most 
certainly be correct, should it actually be proven that he 
was born in 1756 as the compiler of the Tuttle Genealogy 
states.

Susanna (Doolittle) Tuttle of North Haven, Ct., who was 
born June 7, 1736. He married second June 7, 1758, 
Esther Barnes, who was born 1736, died Aug. 5, 1812. 

He was a deacon in the North Haven church, having 
been chosen March 1, 1787, to fill the vacancy caused by 
the removal of his brother Jesse Todd to Springfield, 
Mass. 

The diary of Ezra Stiles, President of Yale College 
from 1782 to 1785 has been published by order of the Yale 
Corporation and edited by F. B. Dexter. In Vol. 1, page 
177, there is a list of "Families in New Haven in 1760." 
There are mentioned twelve families of Todd's including 
Titus Todd, who is mentioned with the Tuttle's under the 
heading "West side of river." 

"In 1792 there appear for the first time the names of 
the Congregational "Choristers :" Caleb Blakesly, Thomas 
Cooper, Justus Bishop, Titus Todd, Jairus Sanford, Thos. 
Pierpont, Ezekiel Jacobs. They were authorized to take 
the lead in singing and three pounds was appropriated to 
hire the singing master." From North Haven Annals.

Oct. 27, 1819, in Agawam, Mass., married first Nov. 26, 
1761, Lydia Cooper. He is mentioned in the Cooper Gen. 
He married second Feb. 24, 1790, Susannah, dau. of Isaac 
and Abigail (Hale) Chandler, of Enfield, Ct., born Feb. 3, 
1754. 

He was mentioned in the "Century Sermon" by Rev. 
Benjamin Trumbull of North Haven, Conn., as having 
removed to "Springfield in Massachusetts." He was 
buried in the cemetery at Agawam, which was originally 
a part of West Springfield, Mass., which was the town in 
which he lived. 

The Thorpe records of his children appear to be 
somewhat wrong. It mentions ten children, seven of 
whom are assumed to have lived only a year or two in 
each instance. The town records of West Springfield, 
Mass. have been carefully searched and it appears there, 
that five of the ten children by his first wife, lived to be

record could be found.

of 300,000 pounds sterling, with which he sailed to Eng- 
land in 1687. For this he obtained 16,000 pounds ster- 
ling, and the honor of knighthood. He returned to Bos- 
ton in 1690, and commanded the expedition which captur- 
ed Port Royal. He was appointed the first Governor of 
Massachusetts under the Charter of 1692. He died 1695, 
aged 44. In 1692, during the height of the witchcraft 
delusion, his wife was accused, and at the same time Mr. 
English, a respectable merchant of Salem, and his wife 
were accused. The latter fled to New York. — Dwight's

ington, Conn, until 1819, where he held a very

large practice. He was one of the most prominent 
men of his time. In 1819 he removed to Hartford, 
Ct. where he was selected as the first Supt. of the 
Retreat for the Insane, he being very largely in- 
strumental in locating the institution there. "He 
was the most perfect man I ever knew." He was 
very eccentric ; used to play the violin on his lonely 
country rides. 
"Dr. Todd, a native of New Haven, and a graduate 
of Yale College in 1787, was settled for many years 
in Farmington, where he acquired an extensive 
practice. In 1819 he removed to Hartford. He 
was a dignified man, with a handsome and benevo- 
lent face, his keen, large eye lighting up his whole 
countenance. His carefully chosen language was 
expressive, earnest, and convincing, and he had a 
large measure of personal magnetism. He was 
especially familiar with the medical literature of 
insanity and the European modes of treatment 
and care of the insane. He viewed the subject 
hopefully; but his feelings were so enlisted that 
his report on the sufferings of the insane, as they 
were then cared for in the State, is said to have 
moved nearly all his auditors to tears when it was 
read before the Connecticut Medical Society. A 
retentive memory enabled him to make good use of 
his extensive reading in matters outside of his 
profession. He possessed the rare ability of con- 
vincing his patients of his deep interest in their 
welfare, and manifested his sympathy often in un- 
looked-for ways ; and with his remarkable powers 
in conversation he sought to divert their minds 
from their discomforts."

62 TODO FAMILY 

pherO born Nov. 3, 1737, Died March 22, 1817, married 
first Dec. 31, 1761, Prudence, daugiiter of Daniel and 
Phebe (Beach) Tuttle, who was born July 6, 1746, died 
Dec. 10, 1798, being a sister of Jabez Tuttle who married 
Mary Todd, see No. 202. "A very remarkable woman." 
He married second March 7, 1799, Eunice Brockett, who 
was born Feb. 21, 1744, died March 27, 1810. Married 
third July 4, 1816, Eliza Brockett, a sister of his second 
wife. 

Prudence Tuttle was from Wallingford, Conn., her 
father being an officer there under the King. Gideon 
Todd was born in North Haven, Conn. Their marriage 
created a sensation in Colonial society. The Tuttle's 
were a wealthy and aristocratic family and when young 
"Gid" Todd asked their daughters hand in marriage, he 
was haughtily refused. He was their equal by birth and 
lineage, but had his fortune yet to make, and they had 
other views for their daughter. One winter day, there 
was consternation and dismay in the Tuttle mansion; 
Prudence was missing and investigation revealed the fact 
that she had eloped, mounted on a pillon, behind her 
lover, they had ridden to North Haven and were married. 
Her parents disowned her and her name was never to be 
mentioned. As time passed, reports reached them that 
Gideon Todd was getting on in a remarkable way; accu- 
mulating property and esteemed by eveiy one, and they 
thought it time to forgive the disobedient daughter; so, 
they loaded a cart with bedding, furniture, and other 
valuables, and started the hired man with it for her home, 
they going on horseback. Arriving there first, they found 
their son-in-law at home, and were courteously received. 
After a time, the cart drove up to the door and they then 
announced that they had brought some presents, when 
Capt. Todd said with dignity, "Time was when the furni- 
ture and bedding would have been acceptable, for when 
we were first married, we slept on the floor on a straw 
bed ; but now I can supply my wife with every comfort, 
and your presents cannot come into the house; but you 
will always be welcomed." And tradition has it, they 
returned home, as chagrined and mortified, as their 
neighbors were amused. 



FOURTH GENERATION 63 

Mr. Todd supported the King, when the trouble came 
about taxation, until the time of the Boston "tea-party," 
when he threw himself and his fortune into the cause of 
the Colonists. When the news came of the British inva- 
sion of New Haven, he was in his barn, dressing off an 
ox, for meat cai-ts were unknown in those days, when a 
man passed by on horse-back, crying, "The British have 
entered New Haven." Jumping on his horse he started 
at once for Fort Hale. His plucky wife. Prudence, at 
once took hold, and helped finish the work of dressing off 
the creature, with only a boy to assist, loaded the carcass 
into a cart, and immediately started, in her husbands 
wake, for Fort Hale, saying, "The soldiers must have 
meat to give them strength to fight." When the load ar- 
rived some-one shouted "Three cheers for Captain Todd's 
wife," and they were given with a will. 

Capt. Todd was widely known, as he took an active 
interest in civil and educational affairs. His tavern, 
which was on the Northford Turnpike, "The Rising Sun" 
was a famous hostelry, and a favorite stopping place for 
travelers. It was also called "The Half Way House," 
between New York and Boston. It is well preserved, and 
is now the home of his grandson, G. Henry Todd, who 
takes pleasure in showing the old tavern sign, the mili- 
tary hat and vest, sword and other interesting relics of 
Colonial days. There are two deeds, given in the Reigns 
of their Gracious Majesties George II, and George III, 
Kings of England, and a permit for the first carriage ever 
owned in North Haven, for which luxury Gideon paid a 
tax. The wine cellar of the spacious mansion, is interest- 
ing, as are the wainscotted chambers. The story of its 
being haunted, only adds to its charm. During the Revo- 
lution, when excitement ran high, an enthusiastic patriot 
exclaimed in the bar-room that he would shoot at sight a 
tory ; a poor ignorant slave boy cried, "I'se a tory, Fse a 
tory," when the impetuous rebel seized his gun and fired. 
It has been said that his ghost walks the broad hall at 
night time. 

He was a Captain during the Revolutionary war, and 
a man of energy and decision. It is said that he fitted

out a privateer, to help the cause, at his own expense, 
for he was a rich man for those days. There are many 
interesting stories told of the valient "Captain Gid."

John ToddS (John*, John^ John^ Christopher') born

68 TODD FAMILY 

daughter of Daniel and Jemima (Lownsbury) Hoit, born 
Aug. 13, 1735, died Feb. 3, 1826. She was a descendant 
of Simeon Hoyte who settled in Charlestown, Mass. in 
1629. The name had numerous variations such as Hoyt, 
Haight, Halt, Hayt, etc. Simeon Hoyte died at Stamford, 
Conn. There is an account of the family in Bolton's His- 
tory of Westchester County, N. Y., as well as a histoiy 
of the Hoyt family of Stamford. About 1700, certain 
members of the family changed the spelling of the name 
from Hoyt to Halt. 

Mr. Todd, though he was well past forty years of 
age, and had a large family to support, enlisted in the 
9th regiment of the 4th brigade of the Connecticut 
Militia, serving under Lieut. Col. John Mead. His 
Captain being Charles Smith. Mr. Todd was a Sergeant 
and drummer. He participated in the battles of Wash- 
ington Heights and White Plains. Time of service be- 
ing from Oct. 1776 to Jan. 1777. By a close study of the 
dates, one can readily see that he left his large family of 
eight children, the youngest being an infant of but two 
months, to serve his countrj^ in her time of peril and need, 
to help expell the hated British who were approaching his 
home so closely. That point having been attained he 
returned quietly to his home and family. Is it not easy 
for one to imagine why his term of service was not 
longer? 

He was one of the founders of the Universalist 
Church at Long Ridge. Shortly before his death he gave 
a plot of gound to his relatives, friends and neighbours, 
for a cemetery. It might be said that the deed of this lot 
was inscribed on his headstone as follows, 

I give my friends this burial ground. 

Here to rest till the last trump shall sound ; 

May we all in triumph rise. 

To meet our Saviour in the skies. 
This was the origin of the beautiful little rural ceme- 
tery at Long Ridge. The loving, brotherly spirit breathed 
in the third line, shows the caliber of his manhood. The

Jonathan Todd^ (TimothyS Jonathan\ John= Chris- 
tophers) born May 17, 1756, died Feb. 10, 1819, married 
first May 17, 1784, Ruth Bishop, who was born 1765, died 
July 8, 1785 ; second Aug. 15, 1790, Chloe Lee, who died 
Nov. 20, 1796; third Jan. 11, 1798, Sally Fowler, who was 
born April 7, 1768, died Sept. 19, 1858. 

Jonathan Todd was a well known physician residing 
in Madison, Conn, where he had a very extended practice. 



FIFTH GENERATION 71 

He was instructed in medical science by Dr. Gale of 
Killingworth, whose eminence in his calling was great. 
Dr. Todd's forty years of practice gave him great expe- 
rience. He was present in the medical staff, at the battle 
of Germantown, Penn. in the fall of 1777. Retired on 
account of ill health. 

The high esteem in which Dr. Todd was held is 
shown by this extract from a published "Sermon deliv- 
ered On the next Lord Day after the death of Jonathan 
Todd, Esq., by John Elliott, M. A., Pastor of the Church 
in East Guilford, 1819." After fifteen pages of sermon 
Dr. Elliott says he will give a brief sketch of "our re- 
spected friend, the beloved physician, not to eulogize the 
dead but to honor the providence and grace of God, which 
raised him up and made him, in his day, so great a bless- 
ing. After completing his studies he served his country 
about a year in the Continental army. In private life he 
was an obliging neighbor, agreeable friend, affectionate 
husband, kind parent, tender brother, devout Christian 
with solid, fixed moral principles." The sermon was 
thirty-one pages of printed matter, book size. His cele- 
brated nephew. Rev. Dr. John Todd writes this discrip- 
tion of him, "a short, heavy, lymphatic man, whose hair 
was almost milk-white, careless about his dress, always 
rode horseback with saddlebags, and charged $0.17 a 
visit. He was most careful as a nurse, and though he 
bled, purged, and gave medicines that would now be 
thought fearful in quantity, yet he was a good physician. 
He was a peace-maker and, though a justice of the peace, 
he always settled the quarrel if possible without trying 
it." 

On April 10, 1781, Capt. Peter Vaill enlisted a com- 
pany of coast guards, of which Lieut. Timothy Field and 
Ensign Jonathan Todd were the other officers. The com- 
pany numbered 100 men and served 8 months and 20 
days. It was "posted in squads at different places along 
the coast, these relieving each other from day to day and 
concentrating wherever it became necessaiy." This 
company was engaged in the most serious encounter with 
the British which took place on Guilford soil. A full 
account of the service of this company may be found in 



72 TODD FAMILY 

the History of Guilford and Madison, Conn., by B. F. 
Steiner. 

Capt. Jonathan Todd was commander of the Military 
Band from 1786 to 1792. 

Child by Ruth Bishop : 

271. William, b. Jan. 3, 1785, d. Oct. 8, 1831 , m. July 5, 

1814, Sarah Redfield. He was a lawyer and lived 
in Guilford, Conn., which town he represented at 
the General Court for several sessions. On July 
4, 1818, Nathaniel Griffing and William Todd were 
chosen delegates to the convention which met at 
Hartford and formed the State constitution. The 
voters of Guilford rejected the results of their 
deliberations by a vote of 159 to 255. William 
Todd was a native of East Guilford, now Madison, 
Conn. He graduated at Yale College in 1806", was 
admitted to the bar in 1809, and practiced his pro- 
fession for almost a quarter of a century in Guil- 
ford, securing the confidence and esteem of his 
fellow-citizens. For many years, his tombstone 
recounted that he was "a graduate of Yale College, 
an attorney at law, an ornament to society, a pillar 
of the church, and his bereaved partner's last com- 
fort this side heaven." After her death, the stone 
was removed and a marble monument erected to 
both. She died in 1892, aged 96. They had no 
children. 
A part of the above description was taken from the 
History of Guilford and Madison, Conn., by Stei- 
ner.

Timothy Todd', (Timothy*, Jonathan^ John^ Chris- 
topher') born May 16, 1758, died Dec. 1, 1806, married 
Nov. 27, 1783, Phebe, daughter of Jehiel Buel of Killing- 
worth, Conn. 

"Timothy Todd was sergeant after the Lexington 
Alarm, served as coast guard 150 days. Enlisted May 15, 
1780." He was a physician in Southern Vermont. Dr. 
Todd remo\ed to Arlington, Vt., having previously seen 
Vermont while in the Continental army as he was en- 
gaged in the battle of Bennington. "He was active, reso- 
lute and Persevering, his professional reputation rising 
and he soon had an extensive medical practice." 

He was a man of considerable literary taste and 
talent, and wrote many medical and other articles for the 
journals of the day, and on various occasions pronounced 
popular orations. A curious little memorandum book of 
his, still preserved, contains, in his own hand writing, "an 
abstract view of the miscellanious writings of Timothy 
Todd, the unfortunate." 

The catalogue gives the titles of orations, contribu- 
tions to magazines, poems and plays, some of which were 
acted, and some operas, most of them having reference to 
politics. He was a freemason and termed a noted mason. 
He joined the military and bore a captain's commission. 
Represented Arlington for at least five years in the Gen- 
eral Assembly, and for three years he was a member of 
the Govei-nor's Council, a body of twelve men which, un- 
der the old Colonial Constitution, took the place of the 
Senate. At the time of his withdrawal from public life 
he was on the point of being elected Governor. 

A few months before his last child was bom, the 
doctor moved from Arlington to Rutland, Vermont, which 



74 TODD FAMILY 

was then becoming a more important place. Here he 
secured for himself a home, and at once established him- 
self in practice. But he had hardly done so, when an 
event occurred which at once overturned all his plans. 
A rich man in West Rutland, who had been taken very 
sick, sent his carriage in great haste for the doctor and 
for his lawyer. The two gentlemen were seated to- 
gether, and were going down the mountain about five 
miles from home, when some part of the harness gave 
way, and the horses became unmanageable and ran, and 
the carriage was overturned and broken. Perceiving 
that it was going over, the doctor called to his companion, 
who was on the upper side, to jump out; but he, in his 
terror, delayed so long that there was time for but one 
to escape. Doctor Todd was caught, and the consequence 
is thus stated by himself : "My left leg was fractured and 
dislocated in a most shocking manner; the bones were 
forced through the integuments, and dragged four rods, 
grinding the earth, and broken into innumerable frag- 
ments." Terrible as this injury was, the doctor was 
wholly unconscious of it till his attention was called to it 
by his horror-stricken friend. The lawyer immediately 
hurried for assistance ; but the country was thinly settled, 
and two or three hours elapsed before his return. In the 
meantime the wounded man crawled to a rock by the side 
of a run of water, in which he laved the wounds, amd 
cleaning them from the clotted blood and the fragments 
of his stocking which had been impelled into them ; and, 
taking his instruments from his pocket, with astonishing 
fortitude proceeded to take up a principle blood-vessel. 
When found by his friends, he was discovered with a 
pencil in his hand, with which he had just been writing. 
Of this writing, the doctor thus speaks : "I sincerely 
offered the following ejaculation to the Father of mercies 
and God of all comfort, and aftei-ward put it in metre" 
(probably seeking with this mental occupation to distract 
his attention from his pain), "that in case I should not 
survive my wounds, as there appeared no hope, my child- 
ren and friends might know the sensations which then 
possessed me. 




TIMOTHY TODD, NO. 118 



FIFTH GENERATION 75 

" 'Great God, the day of thy power is dreadful in- 
deed ! Thy frown is death, and the blasts of thy nostrils 
crush us forever. Behold me in this hour of distress, 
through the sufferings of thy Son ; Then shall mercy beam 
upon me, and open the gates of eternal day. I feel thy 
power ; I own thy justice ; and believe in thy word. What- 
ever fails, suffer me, God, even if thou slayest me, still 
to trust in thee !' " 

"You will judge," exclaimed his son, sixty years 
afterward, "of the character that could in those circum- 
stances write that prayer." 

Help at last arrived. A bier was brought from the 
grave-yard, and covered with feather-beds, and the un- 
fortunate man was tenderly laid on it, and carried on 
men's shoulders to his home. The physicians who were 
summoned replaced the bones as well as they could, al- 
though he implored them to resort to amputation; and 
the result was, that eventually the limb was restored, so 
that the doctor could use it again without even a cane, 
and with very little halt in his gait; but this was only 
after much suffering and long use of crutches. He was 
confined to his bed for months. 

As soon as prudent after this accident he with his 
family moved to Killingworth, Conn., where sometime 
afterward he died.

Asa Todd=, (Gershom^ Gershom'', Michael-, Christo- 
pher^) born June 28, 1756, died July 16, 1847, in West 
Chesterfield Mass., and was buried there. He married 
May 24, 1778, Abigail, daughter of Amos and Phebe 
Bishop, of New Haven, Conn. 

He was a Baptist minister and held pastorates in 
Whately and West Chesterfield, Mass., for more than 
thirty years, having been ordained the first pastor of the 
Baptist Society of Whately, Mass., Sept. 9, 1789. In 1803 
he removed to West Chesterfield, Mass., where he was or- 
dained the second pastor of the Baptist Society of that 
place, and was dismissed Nov. 2, 1820, in consequence of 
a dissatisfaction developing among some of the members 
on account of his having joined the Free Masons, and 
also for difficulties of a more personal nature. Yet, in 
spite of the rupture, he lived among his old neighbors 
for many years afterwards, and was known as "Elder 
Todd," passing his remaining days in his old home. He 
was buried in the cemetery on the hillside below his home, 
by his mothers side. 

Becoming a Christian at the age of 25, he soon felt it 
his duty to make known a Savior's love to those who knew 
him not, and although favored with very limited means 
of education, and meeting with many discouragements, 
yet naturally endowed with great strength of mind, and 
with perseverance, by his own efforts and the grace of 
God, he was an able and successful minister of the Gospel, 
for more than half a century. 

His views of his own sinfulness and the exceeding 
richness of Sovereign Grace, increased with advancing 
age. He retained his physical and mental powers in his 
old age, to a surprising degree. In June, the month be- 

7 



98 TODD FAMILY 

fore he died, he walked a mile to the monthly concert, and 
then back home. In the four months, ending with his 
90th year, he read the bible through in course, without 
the aid of spectacles, and also, read the New Testament 
twice through in the last five months of his life. 

He was ill only about four weeks before his death, 
and seemed to fall asleep, rather than die. When told 
by his son that he had not long to live, he replied, "the 
will of the Lord be done, and it ought to be." His wife, 
the companion of his youth, and also, in his old age, to 
whom he was united in marriage sixty-nine years, sur- 
vived him. 

In early manhood, he enlisted in the Revolutionary 
army, and went with the expedition against Canada un- 
der Gen. Montgomery, enduring untold hardships during 
that most unfortunate campaign, when so many of his 
comrades were stricken with small-pox and other camp 
life diseases. Afterwards he was sent with others to 
reinforce Washington; was one of the sufferers in the 
retreat through New Jersey, and shared in the triumphs 
at Trenton and Princeton. 

In his application for a pension, he mentions the bat- 
tles of St. John, and Trenton, as among those in which 
he participated. He was finally granted a pension, and 
drew ninty-six dollars per year for the remainder of his 
life. 

According to the record of the Connecticut men in 
the Revolution, he enlisted April 1, 1775, for nine months, 
as private, his Capt. was Porter, Col. not stated. In the 
Spring of 1776, he enlisted again, this time for twelve 
months, private, Capt. not stated, Col. was Ward. 

One of his grand-daughters told the writer that, 
when he was about to enlist in the Revolutionary army, 
his mother took his gun and broke it, to keep him from 
going to the war, as her sympathies were with the king. 
She was unsuccessful, however, for he spent nearly two 
years in the army. His older brother, Mix, was a tory, 
and went over to the British, and what property he pos- 
sessed was cofiscated, the proceedings of which may be 
seen in the Probate Court records in New Haven, Conn.

Parker, who was born in 1782, died Nov. 19, 1867. 

Obed Todd died rather young, as may be seen by the 
above dates, and left a widow with three small girls. He 
had built a house to make a home for his family, but at 
his death, his widow being without any means was obliged 
to sell the place and take the amount he had put into it. 
Being thus left without a home, the girls were sent to 
strange homes. Caroline was taken by a family in Mid- 
dletown till she married and went to Providence, R. I., 
to live. Mary had a home with a Mrs. Lyman Allen, who 
lived in a small house opposite the Squire Eastman or 
Ward place in North Haven. Lodema lived with Mrs. 
Lyman Thorp. In her later days, Mrs. Todd made her 
home with her daughter Lodema.

1798, Sally Smith, who was bom Sept. 17, 1778, died Dec. 
19, 1819. 

Mr. Todd was a man of sterling character, and 
marked ability, always conducting himself in public and 
private life with dignity and temperance. He was very 
successful in all his undertakings, and became a promi- 
nent citizen and a large and wealthy land owner. Sudden 
worry and anxiety over business troubles caused his un- 
timely death at the early age of 41. With the loss of her 
husband, Mrs. Todd lost all interest in life and would 
daily, in sunshine or in storm, wander to a hilltop near 
her home, with her youngest children's hands clasped in 
her own, where she could see in the distance the hallowed 
spot where her loved one lay. There she would remain 
for hours, tears coursing down her checks, till the tired 
little ones, aroused her from her grief, and teased her to 
go home. Grief so intense soon absorbed her strength 
and in a little over two months, she too, passed away and 
was laid by her loved one's side. She seems to have 
thought that life was not worth while after her husband's 
death. 

Nine orphans were left to struggle for an existence, 
the eldest barely twenty years of age, the youngest not 
quite two, in this home that was once so happy, one that 
had been unusually free from gloom and care, that the 
people for miles around would tell stories of its pleas- 
ures. Harriet, the oldest child, bravely tried to hold the 



SIXTH GENERATION 115 

home together, but sad to say the usual cruel story fol- 
lowed, the undertaking was too great for her to accom- 
plish unaided and alone. The available funds disappeared 
and later she married, the j ounger ones were put out to 
live in strange homes. When the youngest child became 
of age, there was but little left for each to share, of the 
once large estate. Some of them were fortunate and 
happy, some were very sad. James called his brothers 
to him one day, and told them when he grew rich in the 
sunny south, he would return to them ; he was never heard 
from after his departure. 

The writer has often listened to this story as she sat 
on her father's knee and heard him tell how he had often 
stood in the dark, outside the brightly lighted homes and 
watched other mothers take their tired little ones on their 
knee, draw their heads to their shoulders and rock them 
to sleep, then run from the spot with an aching heart, to 
ciy himself to sleep — alone.

John Todd*, (Timothy'', Timothy, Jonathan^, John=, 
Christopher') born Oct. 9, 1800, died Aug. 24, 1873, mar- 
ried Mar. 11, 1827, Maiy Skinner, daughter of Rev. Joab 
and Lucy (Collins) Brace, of Newington, Conn., who was 
born May 5. 1806. He graduated at Yale College in 1822 ; 
Andover Theological Seminary in 1825. Congregational 
minister; o)-dained pastor of Union Church, Groton, Mass., 
1827; Edwards Church, Northampton, Mass., 1836; First 
Church, Pittsfield, Mass., 1842, where he remained till his 
death. Author of Students Manuel, Index Rerum, Simple 
Sketches, Truth made simple, and many other popular 
books. D. D. Williams College 1845. 

His biography has been very interestingly written by 
his son, John E. Todd. 

His father, having died when he was about six years 
of age, he says that he went to live with his aunt Matilda, 
who had married a Mr. Hamilton, who was a sailor, and 



120 TODD FAMILY 

with whom he made it his home until he was about twelve. 
They lived in North Kilingworth, Conn., before Clinton, 
the soutli part of the town, was set off a town by itself. 

His quiet life while he was living with his aunt in 
North Kilingworth, was varied with occasional visits to 
East Guilford, Conn., where his father's older brother 
Jonathan lived. He had a large family of his own, but 
he always gave the little orphan a hearty welcome. 

At these visits often, as well as sometimes at home, 
he met his father's younger and only other brother, after 
whom he was named, and to whom he was especially at- 
tached. He says, "I loved him from my childhood ; for he 
was one of the very few who used to speak to me in the 
tones of hearth and home that make you feel that the 
cords which bind you to kindred are not all gone. He was 
the only one, after my father's death, who would take me 
into his arms. What child does not love to be fondled? 
and what remembrances do the days of childhood send 
down to later years, and make one wish that such and such 
things wholly beyond our control, but which formed our 
characters, had been otherwise! You will recollect that 
I had no father, and my two uncles had all the love of my 
heart." 

"In the year 1810, my uncle Hamilton being a pris- 
oner among the Spaniards, my aunt broke up housekeep- 
ing for one winter, and I went to live with Mr. Evarts, at 
New Haven. I went to school to Mr. Jarman." 

Mr. Jeremiah Evarts was his own cousin, a son of his 
father's oldest sister, and was at that time practicing law 
in New Haven. Ho had married a daughter of the cele- 
brated Roger Sherman, and was residing on Chapel 
Street, just opposite the college buildings. He had quite 
a large family, having a number of gentlemen connected 
with the college at his table. Little "Jonny" was em- 
ployed in waiting upon the table, running errands, and 
doing a small boy's work about the house. It was, un- 
doubtedly, in the family of this eminent man, and in this 
collegiate atmosphere, that that desire for a college edu- 
cation, which afterward became so strong, began to 
spring up in the boy's mind. 




JOHN TODD, NO. 284 



SIXTH GENERATION 121 

One day he was sent to "the cove," where were a 
store and a small village. By the side of the store there 
stood a long cane fish-pole. It was very long, straight 
and light. How he longed for that pole. If he only 
owned that pole, he thought he would be perfectly happy. 
At last, after much talk and great promises he started 
foi- home. Proudly he mounted old Kate's back. She was 
frightened at first with such a long whip hanging over 
her. Finally he reached home, and instead of finding the 
family I'unning out to greet me and admire my purchase 
(lie had I'un in debt for it, and he knew it would take him 
a long time to pay the debt), they laughed, and asked, 
"Why, John, what do you expect to do with that fish-pole" ? 
It had not occurcd to him that there was not a pond within 
miles of where he lived, there being only a small brook 
running among the bushes where a pole over four or five 
feet long was cumbersome. He "made believe" fish for a 
time, and then set it up against the house, as it was too 
long to take in the house. In a short time the sun cracked 
it, then he thought he would make flutes out of it, so out 
comes his knife and began making flutes; he made the 
finger holes with a hot iron, but not a sound could he get 
out of it, it was a total failure. "Never mind" says he, 
"I can make some nice canes." Out came the knife again 
and he cut the pole into half a dozen pieces ; but in doing 
this he broke and spoiled his knife. Now he had the 
canes; but what was he to do with them. He tried to 
use one as he went to school ; but found he did not need 
a cane ; it was in his way ; and when he wanted to chase a 
squirrel running on the fence, it was a burden, and he lost 
it or threw it away. Piece by piece went his pole, till 
not a foot of it was left ; and yet to be paid for ! Nor was 
that all ; it seemed as if every body wanted to torment 
him about his pole. If the cattle got into the mowing- 
lot, they would cit, "John, your fish-pole will be capital 
for those cattle;" if the canker-worms built a nest on the 
very top of the trees, it was, "John, now for the fish- 
pole"! And when little Johnny dropped his cap in the 
well, he begged for my fish-pole to get it out. It was 
many years before they ceased to hint about a good long 
fish-pole. 



122 TODD FAMILY 

In the fall of 1812, he went to live with his uncle 
Doctor Jonathan Todd, at East Guilford, (now Madison) 
Conn., to enjoy better means of schooling, his opportuni- 
ties having as yet been small. Here he lived two years 
very quietly. Here he learned to swim, to handle a boat, 
to find the best fishing-grounds, and to hunt the sea-fowl. 
Through all his life he preserved a passionate fondness 
for the sea, and for this coast in particular. 

When he had lived with his uncle about a year and a 
half Mr. Evarts came on from Charlestown, Massachu- 
setts, to which place he had moved, to attend commence- 
ment at New Haven. While in the vicinity, he went to 
Madison, to visit his relatives. Here he met again the 
boy who had spent a winter in his family. On his kindly 
inquiring of his welfare the boy replied, "I had hoped, sir, 
that you would want me again in your family." This led to 
further inquiries and eventually to a generous off'er from 
Mr. Evarts of a home in his family, with a view to his 
attending a better school than could be found in Guilford. 
The ofl^er was accepted and when he was asked if he had 
money enough for the journey, he replied that he had. 
Upon being questioned more closely, he admitted that he 
had but seventy-five cents. However, no one gave him 
any more; and so, on the 21st of November, 1815, with a 
small bundle of clothes under one arm and seventy-five 
cents in his pocket, he left forever — not his home, for he 
had had none, but everything that had been home-like, 
and started out into the world alone. It was on Monday 
morning at about eight o'clock that he started off, and 
arrived in Charlestown, Mass., on Saturday morning. 
How he ever made the journey is unknown. Tradition 
has it that he slept by the roadside, protected by a fence 
or a cedar bush only from the November frosts. For the 
first three or four weeks he was very homesick, and says 
that he "was convinced that not many diseases are more 
painful." He lived in Charlestown until 1818, assisting 
Mr. Evarts and attending school. 

In the fall of 1818, he returned to Connecticut in the 
same courageous spirit, and by the same mode of travel 
in which he had gone from his uncle's three years before — 



SIXTH GENERATION 123 

afoot, with his entire wardrobe under one arm, and his 
entire library under the other. 

Concerning taking his entrance examination to college 
he says, "It was afternoon when I reached New Haven, 
and I wont directly to the Presidents room. There I 
found President Day, and with him Professor Kingsley, 
and they proceeded to examine me without delay. They 
found that I was totally unfit to enter college, but, on be- 
coming acquainted with the circumstances of the case, 
they agreed to admit me, witli the understanding that I 
was to apply myself to my studies with special exertion. 
It was late in the forenoon when I left the room. I was 
tired with a long morning's march, and the excitement of 
the examination, I had had no dinner, and had but three 
cents in the world. Two of these were spent in paying 
toll at Tomlinson's Bridge, and with my last copper I 
walked till dark toward Guilford. When I could no longer 
see my way, I lay down under a cedar-bush and slept. 
Very early in the morning I woke, stiff, sore, and almost 
frozen. I reached my uncle's in the course of the moni- 
ing. The college required, as it does now, a bond from 
some responsible person that the student's college bills 
shall be paid. I found my uncle unwilling to sign such a 
bond, as he feared, not unreasonbly, that he would have 
to pay my bills for me. In great discouragement I 
walked over to Killingworth, and told my brother Jona- 
than of my trouble. Now Jonathan was not worth one 
cent more than I was ; but he was a noble fellow, and had 
a great heart, and as soon as he heard my story he ex- 
claimed, "Give me the bond ; I'll sign it." And so he did. 
I never intended any deceit, but it has since occurred to' 
me that probably my brother's signature was mistaken for 
that of the well-known Guilford physician, the names be- 
ing the same. At all events, the bond was accepted, and 
at last I was a freshman in Yale College." 

He kept his promise so faithfully and studied so dili- 
gently, that he damaged and nearly ruined his eyesight, 
having been obliged to wear spectacles the rest of his 
days. Besides keeping up in his studies, he had to earn 
the money to pay his own way. He was so studious and 



124 TODD FAMILY 

SO attentive to his duties, that he could not take any part 
in the college sports, nor in the frivolous college life, his 
views on his duties being too serious thus to fritter his 
time away.

later was obliged to meet them which took all the property 
he owned and left him bankrupt. In those days people 
were imprisoned for debts. He lost his home and suffered 
punishment besides, having been sent to jail where he

passed two years. After this affair, he passed his re- 
maining days on a very poor fami near Waterbury, Conn.

(Blakeslee) Holt, who was bom Jan. 6, 1760, died Sept. 
12, 1819. 

He removed from North Haven, Conn., to Cheshire, 
Conn., in 1783, with his brother Caleb. He too, endorsed 
notes with his brother Caleb, for his younger brother 
Moses, and later had to meet his obligations, and managed 
to pay in full and thus saved his home. The story is that 
he was advised by his friends to leave for parts unknown, 
to make sure to keep out of jail ; but he replied, "I have 
not done a thing that I am ashamed of and I will not turn 
my back to any man." He lived in Cheshire, Conn. 

In 1796, he in company with his brother Moses, and 
Bani Bishop, of Southington, Conn., bought of Mr. Samuel 
Byington, of Wolcott, his farm and hotel located west of 
the Green, and a little southwest of the Meeting house. 
This farm contained forty-seven acres, and besides the 
hotel there was a wheelwright shop. The price paid was 
four hundred and eighty-four pounds. They did not keep 
the business very long, for in Feb., 1797, they sold out 
to Abijah Fenn, who built in the following year, 1798, the 
store near the corner of the lot towards the meeting house. 
This store was later purchased by Moses Todd. 

"In the Autumn, especially along the mountain range 
in the east part of the town, there were immense flights 



SIXTH GENERATION 127 

of pigeons. The killing and salting of these for market 
was a recognized industry. Hezekiah Todd, father of 
Street Todd above named, had a substantial brick house, 
which was jocosely said to have been built of pigeons, as 
the money he put into it was largely the product of this 
industiy."

Anderson, D.D. 

Hezekiah Todd lived very near the angle where the 
three towns of Cheshire, Wolcott and Waterbury met.

North Haven, Conn., to Wolcott at the time his brother 
Moses did, which was soon after 1783. It is supposed 
that the four brothers, Caleb, Hezekiah, Bethuel and 
Moses Todd were not in sympathy with the Colonies

In 1797. Moses Todd bought of Mr. Dan Tuttle his 
farm in Wolcott, Ct., containing ninety-three acres, at the 
south-west corner of the green, having paid seven hundred 
and fifty pounds for it. This farm was aftei-wards owned 
by Mr. Asaph Hotchkiss who resided on it for several 
years. 

After going into bankruptcy, Mr. Todd removed to 
north-eastern Ohio, where he became a very prominent 
farmer. He bred and improved a strain of swine known 
in that region as Todd's Improved Chester Whites. 

He kept a store in Wolcott, Conn., around 1800, but 
soon afterward sold it to Benham and Tuttle who were in 
the business for a number of years.

survivor of his father's family wlio journeyed west 
together at that time, and as he often remarked 
was the last of the pioneers in his neighborhood. 
"Uncle Henry" (as he was familiarly called by 
two generations) was of a kind, genial and social 
nature, fond of friends and friendly with all, know- 
ing no enemies. Positive in his views and convic- 
tions, he was public spirited and the very soul of 
honor, with a keen and discriminating sense of 
right and wrong. Generous to a fault, with a will- 
ing heart and free hand, he was ever ready to help 
the needy, or a good cause. Possessed with a re- 
markable memory and clear mind, stored with a 
large fund of anecdote and incident, he took delight 
in relating the events that happened in his pioneer 
days, and even fui'ther back, in the long ago times 
of his boyhood.

Chauncey ToddS (Jonah\ Stephens SamueP SamueP,

died July 26, 1855, in New Berlin, N. Y., married Sept. 
13, 1812, Susan Hotchkiss, of Bethany, Conn., who was 
born July 18, 1792, died April 20, 1854. 

There must have been some Horace Greeley in those 
days telling young- men to "Go West", for he set forth 
for the unbroken wilderness of Central New York in 1805. 
He returned later to Connecticut to look for some young 
woman also anxious to "Go West", and found her in the 
person of Susan Hotchkiss to whom he was married on 
Sept. 13, 1812. It is the tradition that the wedding trip 
was made on horseback to the new home in the forest 
in the town of Butternuts, Otsego County, N. Y. In this 
pioneer home they lived for many years and there w^s 



SIXTH GENERATION 135 

born the patriarchal family of eleven, all of whom grew to 
man and woman-hood, nine of them marrying and having 
families. He was a true pioneer, for after spending many 
years on the Butternuts farm, he moved to the vicinity 
of New Berlin, Chenango County, and there carved out 
another home. Late in life he again became restless and 
was with difficulty dissuaded from again breaking up and 
emigrating to the wilds of Michigan. 

The following sketch was written by his son. Rev. 
Russell Todd. 

My father, Chauncey Todd, aged twenty- one, in com- 
pany with a young man, Enos Lawrence by name, came 
from Cheshire, Connecticut, into Morris, Otsego County, 
N. Y., then an almost unbroken wilderness, in 1805. Se- 
lecting a tract of land about one mile north from the 
present village of Morris, my father at once began the 
dealing of a space for a log hut, the beginning of a future 
home, then commenced the toilsome labor of felling trees 
and clearing the land. By late autumn two acres of land 
were cleared and sowed to wheat. He then returned to 
Cheshire for the winter. 

By the pleasant sequel which followed our fancy 
may take the pleasant liberty of imagining that the winter 
was not altogether void of pleasure to my father. In the 
neighborhood was a home to which he made frequent 
visits. Here he found her who was to be his future wife, 
Susan Hotchkiss by name, to whom he was to be married 
in the near future. Whether he was married in the spring 
following I am not certain. But it was not long before 
they traveled together to their new home in the wilder- 
ness. 

Our fancy must supply the picture of the next twenty 
years. The portion of the forest selected by father in 
Otsego County became a well cultivated farm with or- 
chard, a comfortable dwelling and good outbuildings. 
Here in this home were bom eight sons and three daugh- 
ters. In 1836 my father sold this farm and purchased 
another about two miles north of New Berlin, Chenango 
County, N. Y., to which he moved in the spring of the 
same year. Here he remained until within a year or two 



136 TODD FAMILY 

of his death, which occurred in the year 1854, my mother 
preceding him the previous year. 

As I recall the memory of my parents, after the lapse 
of fifty years, the relation they bore to each other as 
husband and wife gives me great pleasure and profit. 
There is a witness of a uniform mutual confidence and 
trust. The display of affection was quiet and undemon- 
strative, of such a nature that the home life seldom if ever 
suffered a chill. In all the twenty-five years of my life 
under the home roof, I do not recall such a difference of 
feeling between my father and mother that there arose 
any hardness of words on either side. The best and 
truest evidence of my father's love and devotion to my 
mother was his studious watchfulness to lighten her cares 
and burdens of the home life. The boys being in number 
more than the girls, when it was apparent that the day's 
duties were to be of an unusually hard nature my father's 
quick eye took in the situation, and one of the former was 
commissioned to be the helper of the mother. Again and 
again was it my lot to be an assistant at the wash-tub, a 
helper in the preparation of meals, clearing away and 
washing dishes and sometimes applying the mop to the 
kitchen floor. This relief to my mother was by no means 
transient, fitful or the result of a special appeal on her 
part. It was a regular fixed custom of my father that 
she be relieved in time of need. 

It was my father's custom in the winter season to 
spend his evenings in the shop at the cooper's trade. Be- 
ing a very industrious man, his labors extended well into 
the evening, when he would join the family group, finding 
mother mending or knitting, the children, some reading 
and some at their games. From well established habits of 
my father, the children had learned what greeting to ex- 
pect from father when he had taken his seat in the family 
circle. "Susan (he always addressed her by her christian 
name) is there nothing the boys can do for you, no apples 
to pare for sauce, no pumpkins to be made ready for to- 
morrow's pies or something else they can do for you?" 
Often in late years have I gone back in memory to my 
boyhood days to the old home on the hillside and thought 



SIXTH GENERATION 137 

especially of the fact how watchful and tender was my 
father of her who was his helpmeet in the affairs of home. 
The cares of such a numerous family of eleven children 
were by no means light or few. 

Another chai-acteristic of my father worthy to be 
noticed was his firm regard for what he thought was right. 
There seemed to be no place in his nature for compromises, 
no place for light or trivial action when a principle was 
at stake. I mention but one incident to show this charac- 
ter in him, the same adherence to duty which he thought 
was right was shown in every phase of life. It was a 
Sunday morning in the early dawn of winter. There had 
been many days of constant and heavy rains, the roads 
were in a fearful condition. On the preceding night a 
heavy snow stomi had set in, a fall of six inches was al- 
ready on the ground and underneath a great deal of mud. 
It was still snowing and fair promise that it would con- 
tinue all day. The question of not getting to church on 
such a day under such circumstances, was a foregone con- 
clusion on the part of the boys. We can't get to church 
to-day was the unanimous verdict of the whole household 
save the small minority of two who remained silent and 
undisturbed. The usual hour for starting the two mile 
I'ide to church drew near. The children were anxious. 
They saw evident signs of preparation for going to church 
on the part of the silent two. At last the firm but gentle 
command from father came, "Boys, you may go down and 
harness 'old grey' to the single wagon, your mother and 
I will go to church." It is difficult to describe the feelings 
of us boys as we saw our aged parents go down the hill 
towards church that Sunday morning. This sense of our 
moral weakness is better imagined than put down in 
words. I do not think any of us children did ever forget 
the lesson of that Sunday morning. 

Speaking of a religious custom of my father, it was 
his unifomi habit, every Sunday evening, to gather his 
children, old and young about the old home fireplace to 
teach and hear them say the old church catechism, mother 
joining with the rest in saying the creed and the ten com- 
mandments and the remainder of the matchless formula. 



138 TODD FAMILY 

Turning in thought to the memory of my mother, her 
life seemed to run in helpful harmony with my father's, 
exerting a most potent influence on the household. My 
mother's character was of the gentle type. Her life, as 
it seems to me now in this far away time, was like the 
running of a quiet stream through a peaceful meadow. 
Very seldom a ripple of temper or excited manner of 
speech. Correcting or rebuking her children was always 
in the manner and tones of love. I do not recall a time 
when she lost her self-control or gave way to harsh words. 

As to my mother's personal appearance, I will only 
relate what as a boy of ten years I overheard from a group 
of ladies standing around the stove one winter's Sunday 
noon in old St. Andrew's Church, New Berlin. "Mrs. 
Chauncey Todd bears the sweetest and most winning face 
of all the ladies who appear at church." Her eyes were 
a soft brown, a pleasant smile about the mouth, her hair 
a light brown lightly touched with auburn, remaining un- 
touched with grey to the last.

Josiah Todd^, (Dan% Christopher*, Samuel', Samuel-, 
Christopher') born Dec. 18, 1794, in North Haven, Conn., 
died Oct. 22, 1869, married June 17, 1816, Elizabeth, 
daughter of Jesse and Patience (Todd) Clinton, who was 
bom Sept. 20, 1796, died Nov. 18, 1886. For her mothers 
ancestry, see number 213. They lived first in North 
Haven, Conn., then Newark Valley, N. Y., and later they 
returned to North Haven. 

Josiah Todd was a prominent man in town, school, 
society and military matters for about fifteen years. He 
was orderly sergeant for some ten years in the old militia 
company and was more than once offered a commission, 
but declined, partly on the ground that with his growing 
family his means would not allow. I think I can truth- 
fully say from my own personal knowledge and what has 
been told me by those who were contemporary, and mem- 



SIXTH GENERATION 143 

bers of the company with him, that no one equaled him 
in all the varied tactics with company drill. He was 
very prompt in commanding orders, and trained members 
of the company in the manuel of arms to great exactness 
and promptitude. It was common in those days, for an 
orderly sergeant to form the company, which, under 
his direction was very quickly done, and after short drill 
in the manuel of arms, which usually took place on the 
'Green', a little north and west of the old church, not 
quite in front of what was then the old Esq. Bishop place 
(now E. Lindsley), for the orderly to march the company 
on the double quick, with the fifes and drums playing 
'Yankee Doodle' and the colors flying, up to the old tavern 
on the corner, to receive the commissioned ofticers, who 
were in waiting. My father owned a book of tactics, 
which contained all the necessary knowledge for company 
drill, up to Army Corps, which he well understood, at 
least, so far as it was practically necessary. I think he 
had qualities which would have ensured him success 
pretty well up in the military scale as an officer. He took 
pride in it, was prompt, enthusiastic, and patriotic. 

However, he was more particularly noted as a singer 
and teacher of vocal music. He not only led the choir 
and gave instruction in music here in North Haven, for 
many years, but, also gave instruction in vocal music 
in the adjoining towns, and in New York State as well. 
He was conceded, by good judges, to have been the best 
tenor singer in the State. His ability to awaken en- 
thusiasm in a choir of singers was remarkable, for he was 
exceedingly prompt and enthusiastic. His time and ear 
were perfectly correct, and he would detect at once, any 
inperfection in that respect in others. He was noted for 
his ability to read and sing the most difficult music at 
sight. He studied and understood the science of music, 
and composed some creditable pieces in that line. His 
concerts were remarkable for the selections and for their 
inspirating effect on an audience. 

After his removal to the State of New York, he was 
called upon to engage in teaching music. At the close 
of the lessons, he gave concerts, as was usual in those 



144 TODD FAMILY 

days, that were gi-eatly appreciated by the audiences pre- 
sent. 

He was a great reader and a lover of poetry, and in 
his library were to be found copies of all the English 
poets, among which were Shakespeare, Milton, Cowper, 
Dryden, Henry K. White, Thompson, Young, Burns, Spec- 
tator and Washington Irving. 

He was well versed in the history of our country from 
the earliest settlement to the close of his life, and espec- 
ially its political history. He was a strong Whig, and 
a great admirer of Henry Clay, and took a very active 
part in the campaign in his behalf, for the presidency. 
He was a great admirer of the New York Weekly Tribune 
and especially the editorials written by Horace Greeley, 
the reading of which was looked forward to every week 
as a feast, but did not live to see the unfoi'tunate close 
of the life of the celebrated founder of his favorite news 
paper. 

Written by one of his sons. 

In the spring of 1834, Josiah Todd with his family 
consisting of himself and wife, two sons, Samuel and 
Frederic Handel, and three daughters, Aurelia J., Henri- 
ette W., and Mary J., removed to New York State. The 
main reason for his going was this. The Heartley's 
owned some seven hundred acres of pine and hemlock 
timber land. A man by the name of Belcher had built 
a house and a saw-mill on the premises and had done 
some lumbering of the pine in that vicinity, and some 
off the Heartley property. 

The hemlock was quite valuable, or rather the bark 
was, being used for tanning purposes. 

A contract was made between Josiah Todd, William 
Heartley and the above mentioned Belcher, to take charge 
of a large tannery near the saw-mill on the same stream. 

Josiah Todd and family, together with Timothy 
Andrus and family with his son-in-law Gilbert, left North 
Haven, Conn., with their household goods, boarded a 
schooner at New Haven bound for Albany, N. Y. Here 
they changed to a packet canal boat of the Erie Canal 
and thence to Montezuma, N. Y. From there, they en- 



SIXTH GENERATION 145 

tered a short branch of the canal of about seven miles 
which brought them to Cayuga Lake. Here they boarded 
a steam-boat bound for Ithaca, N Y., at the upper end of 
the Lake, which was about forty miles distant. A steam 
tug hauled the canal boat with their goods. The passen- 
ger boat was old and leaky, and the lake was very i-ough. 
Most of the passengers were sea-sick. The tug, with the 
goods, did not arrive at Ithaca, until the next morning. 
Mr. Gilbert and Luther Andrus came on with the goods, 
as they were left in charge of them. Samuel Todd was 
left at the hotel, to await the coming of the goods, while 
the others of the company got aboard of a lumber wagon 
and rode about 25 miles over a rough road to Newark 
Valley, their destination. 

It was a journey of fifteen days duration, from North 
Haven, Conn., to Newark Valley, which is a decided con- 
trast with the time required in the 20th century, to make 
the same journey. There were no railroads at that time 
in New York State, and very few in other states. 

The company arrived at their destination about the 
15th of May. There was quite a snow storm the night 
after their arrival. The distance traveled was about 
five hundred miles. By the way of the Newburgh turn- 
pike, the distance is about one-half, or about 250 miles. 

It was understood that the tannery would be ready 
for business about the first of June, but it was some three 
months after their arrival, before work could be com- 
menced. 

The Andrus family had exchanged their farm in 
North Haven, Conn., for one in the neighborhood, a little 
north of the tannery, a portion of which had been under 
cultivation for some years. The Todd family did not go 
west for any purpose, but to engage in the business of 
Tanning. Consequently, they took up their abode right 
among the big hemlocks, between two high hills, a very 
tough place for farming, as the sequel will show. 

Josiah Todd bought about forty acres, all heavily 
timbered, except about four acres, which had been cleared 
of the timber about a year. Consequently, the land was 
covered with large pine and hemlock stumps. He had 

10 



146 TODD FAMILY 

little money left, and the fact that the tannery was not 
ready to run, the little money he did have was soon gone. 
Then came the tussle, which seemed to fall to Samuel's lot. 
And to add to his troubles, about a year after the 
tannery opened for business, the company failed, which 
was a sad disappointment to the Todd family, as well as 
a serious loss, and the cause of many hardships.

died Aug. 23, 1889 and was buried in Franklin Grove, 
111., married Sept. 10, 1820, Major Daniel Moore, son of 
Daniel and Jannet (Moore) Bradstreet, who was bom 
Nov. 6, 1795, in Hartland, Windsor County, Vt., died May 
15, 1877 in Franklin Grove, 111., when a child of 2 years, 
she moved with her parents to Middletown, Delaware 
County, N. Y., in 1802, thence to Illinois in 1844, and to 
Franklin Grove, 111. in 1864. 

Mrs. Bradstreet was a cultured woman of charming 
personality, genial disposition and holiness of living. 
None knew her but to praise. 



152 TODD FAMILY 

Her obituary which appeared in the Franklin Grove 
Reporter for August, 1889 is as follows. 

Lo ! A mother is fallen in Isreal. It is with sorrow 
that we note the death of "Mother" Bradstreet which 
occurred Aug. 25, 1889. 

She has been among us as a helper and means of 
strength for so many years that her loss will be keenly 
felt. Possessing fine physical and mental powers she 
devoted the last fifty-nine years of her life to the service 
of Christ. For some eleven years her husband was a 
local preacher in the M. E. denomination. 

Her work has been crowned with great results, it 
being estimated that several hundred people have been 
converted and vast numbers instructed and aided to live 
sanctified lives. "Blessed are the dead that die in the 
Lord." 

When a child of two years, her family moved to Mid- 
dletown, N. Y., where six older children taught in the 
neighboring schools. Although living at the time in a 
pioneer state, she received many advantages. Her earli- 
est recollections numbering her mother's perusal of the 
Scriptures, and her father's tales of his three years toil 
in the Revolution. 

In 1831 she was converted and united with the M. E. 
Church in the spring of that year. In 1833 she conse- 
crated herself to Christ and lived a consistant and happy 
Christian life. 

Of her twelve children, nine preceeded her to the 
spirit world. Three survive her; Mrs. G. T. Patrick, of 
Byron, 111., Mrs. J. D. Smith and Mrs. C. Helmershausen, 
of this place. She also leaves eighteen grand-children 
and eight great -grand-children. 

The funeral occurred at the M. E. Church. The ser- 
mon was preached from her chosen text, II Timothy iv, 
7, 8, by Rev. E. D. Hull, of Kingston, 111., assisted by Rev. 
G. W. Bassett, pastor of the M. E. Church, after which 
she was laid to rest in the family lot, surrounded by rel- 
atives and friends who sorrow not as those without hope. 

Mr. Bradstreets line of descent was (Daniel Moore, 
Daniel, Henry, Simon, Simon, John, Simon.) He joined

thence to Haddam or Haddam Neck, Conn., about 1834, 
he went next to Hebron, Conn., in 1836, later he was at

ter Ruth, who then lived in St. Johnsbury Center, Vt., 
where she died four years later. 

He was chosen selectman in Charlemont, Mass., in 
the year 1869. His son says about this fact: "it is 
strange what little circumstances alter relations. The 
year my father was selectman, heavy rains gutted a large 
number of the town's roads, so badly that the tax rate 
had to be increased, thus the selectmen incurred the dis- 
pleasure of their townsmen and were not re-elected." 

He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal con- 
ference for about thirty years.

the Government gave the soldiers either a pension or a 
farm and he took the farm which was located just out- 
side of Killawog, Broome County, N. Y. So far as can 
be learned he passed the i-emaining years of his life in 
Killawog and probably on this same farm. In connection 
with the operation of his farm, he was a cattle dealer.

there on a visit.

died Oct. 31, 1892, at Adrian, Mich., married in 1827, 
Mary P. Ii-eland, who was bora in 1807, died Nov. 10, 
1892. 

Early in life, Mr. Todd learned the blacksmiths trade 
which he followed in New York City until 1833, when 
he removed to Adrian, Mich., making the journey by 
way of the Erie Canal to Buffalo. At Buffalo, he char- 
tered a schooner to carry his family and household goods 
to Toledo, Ohio. The journey from Toledo, 0., to Adrian, 
Mich., occupied five days. 

Arriving at Adrian, Mich., which at that time con- 
sisted of only a few log houses, he opened a blacksmith 
shop at once, which was the first in that region. After 
working three years at his trade at Adrian, he removed to 
Rome Township, Mich., where he cleared a section of 
land. He helped to organize a Methodist Society; gave 
land for a school house and also for a cemetery. Here 
most of his active years were spent in honest toil. He 
established and merited the reputation of being an honest, 
conscientious and upright man, a kind neighbor, a good 
citizen and a consistent Christian. During eight years 
of this time, he kept a tavern, but it was one from which 
no drunkard ever reeled, because, it was kept without a 
bar or a drop of liquor. The most numerous of all his 
guests during this time were the pioneer Methodist min- 
isters, who were none the less welcome, and entertain- 
ment for them was free. 



SEVENTH GENERATION 211 

In 1859, he returned to Adrian, Mich., to spend the 
remaining thirty years of his life in retirement, in the 
enjoyment of a quiet home and a beautiful old age. 

Mr. Todd's religious faith was Methodist. In poli- 
tics he was a Republican until the Prohibition party was 
organized, with which he very soon became affiliated, 
and gave it his enthusiastic support, as did four of his 
sons.

field, owned the only store for miles around. They also, 
established a shoe business there, and when it had ex- 
panded to large proportions, they sold the factory which 
they had occupied, to Seth Smith Cook and Charles H. 
Lounsbury. Their business prospered and thrived for a 
number of years. Distance from the railroad caused 
them to move to Stamford, having sold the business at 
Long Ridge, to John E. Todd, son of Elnathan, one of the 
founders.

Isaac Todd", (Hoses'^, Hezekiah^ Caleb*, SamueP, 
Samuel-', Christopher') born Dec. 18, 1808, possibly in 
Newtown, Conn., died July 17, 1890, in Wakeman, Ohio, 
married June 13, 1830, Fanny Booth, who was bom Oct. 
26, 1805, died Sept. 28, 1887, in Wakeman, Ohio. 

The following sketch is taken from a History of 
Huron County, Ohio. 

"In the year 1827 Isaac Todd, then a young man of 
18 came into the township and the year following bought 
the farm where he now lives. There was no improve- 
ment east of him at that time. In 1830 he married 
Fanny Booth. Mr. Todd seems to have had a hard strug- 
gle of it in the Wakeman woods. For some time after 
his marriage he was destitute of boots or shoes and in 
attending church his wife would wear her everyday shoes 
carrying her Sunday best until near the church, when 
she would take them off for her husband to wear and 
put on her best ones. Afterwards, when he became able 
to own a yoke of oxen, they rode to church on a sled the 
year round." 

The above incidents prove very conclusively their 
devotion to their church. He built his first log house in 
the midst of an almost boundless forest through which 
there was no road or path save that indicated by glazed 
trees. When a road was built some years later, he se- 
lected his farm ; it ran nearly a half mile from his house. 
When he chose the location for his farm he ventured on 
the undertaking with $18 capital. With this small be- 
ginning in the wilderness he cleared the heavily timbered 
land until his farm eventually included some 240 acres 
of very fertile and productive soil, all of which is now 
available for cultivation save a few acres preserved for 
a "sugar bush". For a number of years their sugar sup- 
ply was obtained from this source, and their meat supply 
he obtained wild hogs, deer and wild turkeys and other 
game which abounded in that region. The woods also 
abounded in vast quantities of beech and other nuts on 
which the wild hogs especially, became very fat. 



SE\'ENTH GENERATION 227 

The above description of the career of Isaac Todd 
would go to show or at least reflect the consequences of 
his fathers unfortunate business ventures, even though 
the disaster followed in the wake of events over which he 
had no control. However, the after life of both Isaac 
Todd and his father would go to show that they were very 
liberally supplied with initiative and perseverance, hav- 
ing settled in the midst of an almost boundless forest, 
and which he proposed to help to subdue, and in fact 
doing his full share. 

Children : 
1182. Sarah D., b. April 16, 1831, d. March 29, 1900, 
in Wakeman, Ohio, Grad. from Obeiiin College, 
in 1855 ; taught school for a number of years.

Kneeland Todd^ (Moses", Hezekiah=, Caleb*, Sara- 
ueP, Samuel% Christopher^) born Dec. 18, 1808, in New- 
town, Conn., died April 24, 1883, married April 24, 1836, 
Julia Booth, a sister of his brother Isaac's wife. She 
was bom July 22, 1808, died March 11, 1895. 

Mr. Todd was one of the early pioneers of Wakeman, 
Ohio, where he arrived in 1833. He shared the priva- 
tions of early pioneer life with his twin brother for three 
years, when he returned to Conn, and there married Julia 
Booth, of Woodbuiy, Conn. It is a singular coincident 
that his marriage and death, also the death of his son 
Albert, took place in the same month and the same day 
of the month. Soon after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. 
Todd returned to Ohio and settled in Wakeman. In 1845 
they removed from Wakeman to Florence, Ohio, where 
he died. 



228 TODD FAMILY 

He was a man of sound judgment and good princi- 
ples, kind and affectionate as a husband and father and 
a good neighbor. He aimed to live uprightly, was honest 
and just in his dealings. In his pursuit of agriculture 
and horticulture he was always thorough and practical, 
which combined with perseverance and industry brought 
him success and competence, though for fifty years he 
was physically weak. 

Politically, morally, and religiously, his guiding star 
was the RIGHT, and he rejoiced in every good work. 
In the old anti-slavery movement he was a radical and 
a pioneer. In 1835 he professed Christianity and was 
one of the original members of the Congregational 
Church in Wakeman, Ohio. 

Removing to Florence he united with the Presby- 
terian Church there, in which he held the office of deacon 
for several years, till the time of his death. 

He lived for his family, his fellow men, and his God. 
His example and good deeds still live and are worthy 
of imitation.

Leonard Todd% (Ely^ Jonah% Stephen*, SamueP,

and Lowly (Dickerman) Bradley, who was born Nov. 21, 
1802, died Oct. 11, 1899. 

Leonard Todd received a country school education 
and when 21 years of age he married Julia Bradley, of 
Hamden, Conn., in Grace Episcopal Church, in Hamden, 
the first couple to be married in the new church, the same 
is standing and is still used for worship. 

Leonard Todd was a good illustration of New Eng- 
land thrift. By hard work and rigid economy he not 
only got a good living off from one of those stony New 



ii40 l:ODD FAMILY 

England farms, but he amassed quite a fortune for those 
days. It was not necessary to teach thrift to Leonard 
Todd in the last century, for he together with his frugal 
wife had already learned that lesson and learned it well. 
It would be well if we who live in this 20th century would 
practice it more as did they. Like so many of those 
saintly men and women of those times, while frugal and 
careful and thrifty, Leonard Todd was not miserly or 
penurious as can be testified to by the fact that he was 
always very generous to the church, also to individuals 
when occasion required and to worthy causes. 

Mr. Todd was a very strong churchman, and was 
deeply devoted and strongly attached to the Episcopal 
Church, the church of his ancestors. In that faith he 
lived and died, strong in his convictions in the same and 
a sincere christian. 

On Dec. 24, 1871, Leonard and Julia (Bradley) Todd 
celebrated their Golden Wedding. 

In 1919, their descendants erected a beautiful bronze 
tablet in Christ Church, Bethany, Conn., in their mem- 
ory, as follows : 

. IN MEMORIAM

Alfred Todd% (Caleb% Caleb% Stephen*, SamueP,

Marcellus, N. Y., died April 17, 1877, married Feb. 19, 
1828, Mary Ann, daughter of Oliver and Esther (Sayles) 
Hovey, who w^as born Jan. 15, 1809, in Marcellus, N. Y., 
died May 25, 1888. 

Mr. Todd lived in Marcellus, N. Y., until 1835, seven 
years after his marriage, when he moved to Michigan and 
purchased a farm near the village of Nottawa, St. Joseph 
County, as a pioneer. Shortly before moving to Michi- 
gan, he had bought eighty acres of land in the primeval 
forest, almost the entire State being then practically a 
wilderness with many Indians still to be found every- 
where, but mostly of a peaceful nature. The State at 
that time was veiy sparsely settled, and the nearest rail- 
road station was about sixty miles away, so that the 
products of the farm had to be drawn with horses that 
distance to market. Perhaps the most striking of the 
traits of Mr. Todd was his unusual high conception re- 
garding absolute honesty and justice. His views and 
practice of honesty were so universally known and re- 
garded that it was a matter of public comment, and his 
children thought proper accordingly to have inscribed on 
his tomb, "He was an honest man." 

Mrs. Todd was one who combined a rare intellect 
and accomplishments with much executive ability, being 
also a poetess and a leader in the intellectual circle 
of the County. Both Mr. and Mrs. Todd were Presby- 
terians, and imbibed the rigid discipline of that church

Ann P. Todd', (Stephen% Stephen^ Stephen*, Sam- 
uelf, SamueP, Christopher') born April 17, 1807, in Sal- 
isbury, N. Y., died Nov. 20, 1879, in Little Falls, N. Y., 
married Oct. 5, 1831, in Salisbury, N. Y., Hon. Arphaxad, 
son of Thaddeus and Lois (Griswold) Loomis, who was 
bom April 9, 1798, in Winchester, Conn., died Sept. 15, 
1885. 



25(5 TODD FAMILY 

At the age of three years his parents removed from 
Winchester, Conn., to Salisbury, N. Y. His father was 
a farmer in moderate circumstances, and Arphaxad's boy- 
hood days were spent in assisting his father upon the 
farm. At the age of 15 he was "hired out" by his father 
to teach a district school in the town of Norway, eight 
miles from his home, for a term of three months, at $6 
a month "and board around," walking home Saturday 
nights and back again Monday mornings. By teaching 
winters and attending Fairfield Academy summers, he 
educated himself. He began reading law in 1818 at 
Johnstown, then at Watertown, then at Carthage, and 
finally ended his course at Sacketts Hai'bor, and was ad- 
mitted as an attorney of the Supreme Court in Jan., 1822. 
In 1825 he finally decided to locate in Little Falls, N. Y., 
where he entered upon the practice of his chosen profes- 
sion. In 1827 he received the appointment of Surrogate 
(County Judge) of the county, which office he held until 
1837. In 1835 he was appointed first judge of Herkimer 
County and held the ofiice until 1840. In 1836 he was 
elected a member of the 25th Congress. The reason he 
was not returned to the next Congress is, that Herkimer 
County was not entitled to the member, having had the 
representative in Congress since 1824, the 26th being 
conceded to Lewis County. He was a member of the New 
York Assembly in 1841-2 and again in 1853. He was 
highly honored by his colleagues. 

In addition to his accomplishments in his profession 
and in public life, he had rare tastes for the beautiful in 
art, a marked mechanical skill and inventive turn of mind, 
which gave him much occupation at several periods of 
life, and beyond and above these, he acquired unusual 
attainments in literary and scholarly studies. 

It was in December 1818, that he discovered a de- 
ficiency in his hearing, which grew gradually so that 
finally his extreme deafness caused him to retire practi- 
cally from public life in 1857.

Samuel Todd% (Josiah", Dan% Christopher*, SamueP, 
SamueP, Christopher^ born Aug. 22, 1817, in North 
Haven, Conn., died Dec. 1898, in South Manchester, Conn., 
married first, Jan. 7, 1851, Emily, daughter of Harvey 
and Nancy (Johnson) Rich, of Owego, N. Y., who was 
born Dec. 10, 1825, died Dec. 26, 1868, in Newark Valley, 
N. Y. He married second, Jennie Button, who lives in 
South Manchester, Conn. 

Samuel Todd went to Newark Valley, N. Y., with 
his father in 1834, and a year later, when the tannery, 
which was to have given employment to Samuels father, 
Josiah Todd, went into bankruptcy, Samuel, who was then 
about eighteen years of age, and very ambitious, took the 
brunt of the struggle to stem the tide of misfortune 
and hardships. In the winters he taught school, while 
in the summers and autumns, he worked at clearing off 
the big hemlocks, some of which were monsters, some 
of them being about 100 feet tall and four feet in diam- 



SEVENTH GENERATION 261 

eter at the stump. After the huge trees were cut, they 
were rolled into large piles and burned. People of the 
present day would consider this method a very wasteful 
way to prepare land for agricultural purposes. In the 
spring time, they devoted their time to the manufacture 
of maple sugar and syrup. Samuel was the leading spirit 
in all this work. At last a comfortable home was pro- 
vided for the family. 

Not long after the family arrived at Newark Valley, 
N. Y., Samuel, with other members of the family, united 
with the Congregational Church. The society, learning 
that Samuel was a flute player, invited him to play in the 
church choir, which he did for several years, and at a 
later date became its leader. He taught a Sunday school 
class, and later became superintendent. When he was 
about twenty years of age, the church society offered to 
give him a college and theological education on condition 
that he become a missionary of the American Board of 
Foreign Missions. 

In 1865, he was chosen deacon, and held the office 
until his return to North Haven, Conn., where he united 
with the church in his native town. 

The church society at Newark Valley, N. Y., had, 
for some years previous to the arrival of the Todd family, 
settled a Presbyterian minister. Congregational minis- 
ters were not as numerous in New York State in those 
days as they are now. The town was settled mostly by 
people from Massachusetts and Connecticut and the 
church was organized strictly on Congregational princi- 
ples. Rev. Marcus Ford, continued to preach as a settled 
pastor of this society, from his first settlement at the age 
of 22 until he was 70 years of age, when his health failed 
him. Mr. Todd, being one of the leading members of 
the church, thought it a wise thing to secure a congrega- 
tional minister. The church at that time was connected 
with the Presbytery through the influence of Mr. Ford, 
who was a graduate of Princeton Theological Seminaiy, 
therefore, a Presbyterian "dyed in the wool." The church 
had been so long under Presbyterian influence (nearly 
fifty years) that many of the members were half inclined 



262 TODD FAMILY 

that way, and were quite indifferent as to the Congrega- 
tional plan. Through the tact and influence of Mr. Todd, 
a Congregational minister was secured with little opposi- 
tion and has so remained to the present time with satis- 
factory results. 

While Mr. Todd was superintendent, many new 
books were added to the Sunday school library, new sing- 
ing books suitable for Sunday school use were obtained, 
and a good cabinet organ was purchased. 

In those days, there was occasionally organized, in- 
dependent companies of militia. Mr. Todd became a 
member of such a company of riflemen, passing from one 
grade to another until he received a Captains commission 
which he held about five years, at the end of which ser- 
vice, he was exempt from further military duty, accord- 
ing to a State law. 

He was always very active in temperance work. 
When he was about twelve years of age, he became a 
member of the Total Abstinence Society in North Haven, 
Conn. After moving to Newark Valley, N. Y., he con- 
tinued to do all he could to forward the temperance cause. 
He was instrumental in obtaining a charter for organ- 
izing a division of the order of the Sons of Temperance, 
and was chosen its first Worthy Patriarch. This divi- 
sion became very large and prosperous, and continued 
so for many years. He was secretary of the Union Total 
Abstinence Society for several years, holding the office 
until his return to North Haven, Conn. 

He was often chosen as delegate to the meetings of 
the Presbytery, and later, to the Congregational Associa- 
tion conventions, and to the State Sabbath School con- 
ventions. 

Through the influence of W. S. Lincoln a near neigh- 
bor, and later a member of Congress, at the time of the 
civil war, Mr. Todd was appointed as one of the watch- 
men in the Quartermasters department then stationed at 
Hagerstown, Maryland. Soon afterwards, he was trans- 
fered to Washington, D. C, where he held an office in the 
department from November 1863 to April 1864. He was 
present at the inaugural address of Abraham Lincoln's 



SEVENTH GENERATION 263 

second term, only a few weeks before his assassination, 
and at the reception day ceremonies, he shook the hand 
of the distinguished man whose wife was Maiy Todd, a 
descendant of Robert Todd who settled in Pennsylvania. 

While he was living in Washington, his first wife, 
Emily Rich, began to show alarming symptoms of con- 
sumption, which dread disease eventually was the cause 
of her death two years later. 

Afterwards, while visiting relatives in his native 
town of North Haven, Conn., he met Miss Jennie Button, 
who later became his second wife. In the latter part of 
his life he returned to North Haven, Conn., to live.

ried Sept. 17, 1850, Phebe Elizabeth, daughter of Wil- 
liams and Maria (Benjamin) Slosson, who was born 
March 9, 1830, in Newark Valley, where also she was 
married at her fathers house. 

His father removed with his family to Newark Val- 
ley, when he was about thirteen years of age, and being 
in poor circumstances could give his son only the advan- 
tages of a common school education. Upon arriving at 
the age of manhood Mr. Todd became a tanner (which 
was his fathers occupation in life), which business he 
followed for a number of years; he also opened and 
carried on a store for the sale of general merchandise 
at Newark Valley, N. Y. 

In 1858, Mr. Todd made a purchase of lumber lands 
in northern Michigan, and seven years later, or there- 
abouts, began operations in cleai'ing, lumbering, etc., in 
that State. He was drowned in the Muskegon River

while attempting to cross the boom or shute, letting out 
the logs, the current being very rapid. He was a stanch 
member of the Republican party, and represented the 
town of Newark Valley in the board of supervisors for 
two or three terms. In his death his wife lost a dutiful 
husband; his children, a loving father; his friends and 
business associates, an honest man.

Mr. Todd was married in Low^ille, N. Y., and soon 
after moved to Mina, Chautauqua County, N. Y., where 
he bought land which was covered with heavy timber. 
He cleared a spot large enough for his house and a 
garden. The house he built of logs, and here the first 
three children were born. About 1832, he hired out to 
a man in Sherman, N. Y., to manage an ashery. As the 
work was very exacting, he soon gave it up, and started 
for Illinois, where he bought a nice prairie fai-m. After 
having bought the farm, he went back to New York to 
get his family and household goods and again started for 
Illinois and their new home, the journey being made with 
a team. This was about 1843. He believed in education, 
and they both were very anxious to have their children 
receive a good one, and helped them all within their 
power.

Boston and was buried by her husbands side. 

He went to Boston before he was of legal age, having 
bought his time from his father. He was engaged, for 
some years, as a salesman in gentlemens furnishings, but 
owing to ill health incurred by being forced, as a boy to 
do farm work beyond his strength, he was obliged to 
take up some outdoor occupation, therefore, he bought 
and sold goods of all kinds, loaned and invested money 
and acquired, for his times, a modest competency. Ow- 
ing to over strict religious training in his early youth, 
he was not a professed Christian, but in all his life, he 
wronged no one intentionally, either directly or indirect- 
ly, and died at peace with all the world. Those who knew 
him intimately say his word was as good as his bond.

(Green) Nelson, who was born Nov. 8, 1808, died May

He left school for the farm at a very early age and 
remained actively engaged in farming till his death. His 
farm was on the old turnpike i^oad, two and a half miles 
from Somers (N. Y.) village, known as the Micah Purdy 
farm, which he bought from his father Uel Todd. His 
house was built upon a high elevation of ground some 
distance west of the highway. It is a handsome struc- 
ture, and occupies a sightly location from whence a fine 
view is obtained of the Plum Brook Valley, the undulat- 
ing farm lands of eastern Somers, and the distant hills 
of south-western Connecticut. Surrounding the house 
is an ample lawn, and the cultivated fields of a rich and 
extensive farm. 

Harvey M. Todd was a plain, unostentatious man, 
upi-ight and straightforward in every transaction. He 
won, by his steady industry, a large fortune, and obtained 
for himself an enviable place in the community in which 
he lived. He was a director of the Farmers and Drovers 
Bank at Somers, N. Y.

SEVENTH GENERATION 285 

N. Y., died Oct. 5, 1880, married Dec. 10, 1832, Hester 
Jane Green, who was born Sept. 12, 1809, died Feb. 18, 
1896. 

At the age of seven, he moved to Somers, N. Y., 
with the other members of the family, and settled upon 
the farm which afterwards became his own and home 
for life. Educational advantages at the time were ex- 
tremely limited, and the youthful Oliver made the most 
of the few winter months of tuition available at the dis- 
trict school, and acquired a fair education, but his life 
work was to be more manual than mental, and his edu- 
cation was most thoroughly practical, installed by the 
hardy experiences of the old days of farming. 

Close application and untiring industiy, naturally 
resulted in developing a model farm, comprising about 
two hundred and fifty acres, with a good house and other 
farm buildings. At the age of twenty-seven he married 
Miss Hester Jane, daughter of Isaac Green of Somers, 
N. Y., who brought to the home he had prepared, an ex- 
perience in the duties pertaining to a farmers life, and 
a genial and happy disposition, well calculated to enhance 
prosperity. 

Conveniently situated upon the direct turnpike road, 
the immense droves of cattle and sheep, slowly wended 
their way toward the city markets, found on the Todd 
farm ample accommodation, and for many years it be- 
came a noted hostelry. 

The following items taken from his account-book 
for the year of 1849, show something of the character 
of his business in those days. 

To 11,000 head of cattle @ 8^^ per head per night, 
$880. 

To 16,000 head of sheep @ 1^ per head per night, 
$160. 

Drivers board and lodging, (Cattle), $110. 

Drivers board and lodging, (sheep), $80. 

Besides, he wintered forty head of cattle of his own. 
A full half century of activity resulted in the accumula- 
tion of an ample competence. The last decade of his life 
was rendered inactive by an insidious nerve disease, 



286 TODD FAMILY 

which though incapacitating him for any physical exer- 
tion, left his mind unclouded to the end. He died on his 
seventy-fifth birthday, and was buried in the family ceme- 
tery, located but a few rods north of his house.

to live in the old home where she resided until 
her death. Having d. without issue, her estate 
was divided between her many cousins, descen- 
dants of her thirteen uncles and aunts. She, too, 
was buried in the Todd Cemetery near the farm.

Addison Eli Todd", (Eli^ Solomon^ JamesS James% 
SamueP, Christopher^) born July 22, 1821, in Charle- 
mont, Mass., died Sept. 14, 1878, married, March 22, 
1860, Isabella Ball, who was born Feb. 13, 1833, in Green- 
field, Mass., in which town they were married. 

Mr. Todd lived the first twenty-one years of his life 
in Charlemont, Mass., assisting his father with the work 
on the farm. Attaining his majority, he started for the 
west. Arriving in Michigan, he found employment in 
the saw mills of Lenawa County for several years. Re- 
turning to Massachusetts, he purchased a piece of timber 
land and began manufacturing "shook," or dressed staves 
which were shipped to the West Indies, to be used for 
barreling sugar. In 1854, he, with his brother. Dexter, 
journeyed to Minnesota, and was employed for a time 
in building and operating a large saw mill at St. Anthony, 
which was the first mill to be built on Rum River. In 
those days, wooden pins were used to hold the frame of 
buildings together. Each man on the job was requested 
to make a pin. As Mr. Todd's was the best specimen 
offered, he was given the task of making enough for the 
mill then in process of construction. 

In the spring of 1855, Mr. Todd returned to Min- 
nesota, this time making the journey on horseback. 
Passing through Rochester, where the settlers were just 
beginning to build, he arrived the next day on the bank 
of Zumbro River. There being no bridge, he and his 
horse were obliged to swim across. This being accom- 
plished, he proceeded to spread his money and papers on 
the grass to dry. Journeying on he soon after came to 
Elba, Winona County, Minn., which seemed to be situated 
in a well watered and wooded valley, and looked some- 
thing like home to him, his old home in the east. Near 
here he took up his claim of 160 acres in sections 6 and 
7, where he made his hom.e until the time of his death, 
where his family lived for forty years. 



SEV-ENTH GENERATION 807 

In 1858, he built a saw mill, which for many years, 
prepared the lumber for the houses of his neighbors. 
Improvements were made on the farm from time to 
time, and by various purchases, the area was increased 
to 350 acres in the home farm and 40 acres more in 
another lot, it being well stocked, and free of debt. 

In politics, Mr. Todd was Democrat, which did not, 
however, prevent him from supporting the Federal Gov- 
ernment during the civil war. One time he advanced a 
thousand dollars to the town for bounties to volunteers, 
which was subsequently returned to him. He was chair- 
man of the board of Supervisors during the war, and 
again in 1871. He was active in the support of the 
schools and held various school offices.

Dexter Josiah Todd% (Eli% Solomons James*, 
JamesS SamueP, Christopher^) born Sept. 22, 1828, in 
Charlemont, Mass., died March 24, 1886, of Pneumonia 
at his home in Fairwater, Minn., married in 1858, Eliza- 
beth Jane, daughter of Zenas and Julia (Smith) Elmer, 
who was born July 17, 1835, in Ashfield, Mass., died April 
5, 1909, in the old home in Fairwater, Miim. 

He left the old home in Charlemont, Mass., when 
he was about twenty-two years of age. For the next four 
years he worked in the woods, most of the time getting 
out "shook." In the spring of 1854, he with his brother 
Addison removed to Minnesota and was employed in 
constructing a dam and mill on Rum River. The follow- 
ing winter was spent in the "pinery" on the same stream 
and in the spring he removed to Elba, Minn., and there 
he took up 160 acres of land in section eight, which he 



SEVENTH GENERATION 309 

at once began to improve. In the summei* of 1856, he 
built the first frame house in Whitewater Valley, Minn. 

In 1858, he went back to Massachusetts and at that 
time married Miss Elmer, soon after which event, they 
returned to Minnesota and settled down on his faiTn in 
Elba, which he continued to improve and enlarge until 
he eventually owned 253 acres of land located in sections 
five, eight and nine, in what is now Fairwater, Minn. 

The house was enlarged and remodeled in the sum- 
mer of 1883. 

In politics, Mr. Todd was a staunch democrat; but 
he never took an active part in public affairs.

1610. Edward Elmer, b. March 29, 1862, d. Dec. 11, 

1904, in Bo, West Africa, m. Nov. 28, 1893, in 
Greenfield, Mass., Delia N. Bass, who was born 
in that town. 

At the time of his fathers last sickness, he was 
called home from California, to manage the fairm, 
which he continued to do for three or four years 
after his father's death. In the Autumn of 1890, 
he again left the old home in Fairwater, to enter 
Western College in Toledo, Iowa, to prepare for 
the ministiy. Thence, he went to the Moody 
Institute in Chicago, 111. From this school, he 
was appointed pastor of the United Brethren 
Church at Gray Eagle, Minn., in 1894. He mar- 
ried just before entering this field, where he re- 
mained until 1899, when he went to West Africa 
as a missionary. In 1903, he returned to Amer- 
ica for a needed rest, but after a few months 
reci'eation, he with his wife once more went back 
to his work in Africa, where he contracted Afri- 
can fever from which disease he never recovered. 

A very full account of his life and work may be 
found in Woman's Evangelist, Feb. 1905, pub- 
lished in Dayton, Ohio. No children.

No children. 



Lorenzo U. Todd', (Eli°, Solomon% James% James^ 
Samuel^ Christopher^ born Nov. 16, 1832, died Feb. 
7. 1906, married in Elgin, Minn., March 3, 1859, Nellie, 
daughter of Hiram and Adassa (Wilson) Preston, of New 
York, who was born Aug. 31, 1836, she having moved 
to Minnesota a year or two prior to her marriage. Her 
older sister accompanied her to Minnesota but later she 
removed to Walla Walla, Wash. Mrs. Todd died March 
14, 1906. 

"He had a little better educational advantages than 
his elder brothers (Addison and Dexter J.) having fin- 
ished his studies at an academy. He engaged in teach- 
ing for a short time, one term being in the west after 
his removal thither. He came to Elba (Minn.) in April 
1855, with his elder brother Addison and made claim to 
one quarter section of Government land in section eight, 
on which his home has ever been. Additions have en- 
larged his farm to 264 acres ; it is finely improved, with 
good buildings, etc., and its proprietor diversifies his in- 
terests by raising stock as well as grain. His premises 
are admirably adapted for stock raising, the North branch 
of the Whitewater furnishing an abundance of living 
water and its valley a wealth of pasturage. 

"In religion, Mr. Todd was a Universalist ; in politics 
he has always been a democrat; was elected Justice of 
the Peace in 1857, being the first in the township; he 
was town treasurer in 1859-61 ; overseer of the poor in 
early days; member town board in 1875, and chairman 
of that body and Justice in 1883." 

The later years of his life were passed quietly in 
hiF5 old home, his younger son assuming control and oper- 



SEVENTH GENERATION 311 

ating the farm under his fathers directions. In disposi- 
tion and character, his equal would be hard to find, and 
his love for home found him constantly there, where 
a wai-m welcome was extended to his friends and acquain- 
tances.

He attended the public schools in the various towns 
to which his father was called, he being a Methodist 
minister. When twenty years of age he entered Wes- 
leyan University graduating in the class of '64. He then 
took up teaching becoming the classical teacher in the 
Peter Parley School in Ridgefield, Conn. Later he de- 
cided to take up the practice of medicine. In order to 
do this he went to Essex, Conn., where he became princi- 
pal of Hill's Academy, where he could obtain the valued 
advice of a prominent physician in the town, teaching 
and studying at the same time. From there he entered 
the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York, N. 
Y. After graduating, the young doctor started the prac- 
tice of medicine in Ridgefield, Conn., but finding the 
fruits of his labor insufficient, he accepted a position as 
teacher in the then high classed preparatory school, High 
Ridge Institute in Ridgefield. He also continued to prac- 
tice his profession as best he could. 

In 1876, he married Mary Jane Conklin, of Essex, 
Conn., an acquaintance made during his college days, 
having just previously given up the school work to devote 
all his time to his profession. He took an active interest 
in the aflfairs and welfare of the town, serving for a num- 
ber of years on the school board; was one of the pro- 
moters of the Ridgefield Savings Bank, the Ridgefield 
Press Company, and the town Library. He served sev- 
eral terms as a representative to the state legislature,

Iru Studley Todd', (Justus*^, Asa'', Gershom*, Ger-

Feb. 4, 1882, at his home in Roberts Meadow, Northamp- 
ton, Mass., of pneumonia, married March 24, 1836, Juli- 
anna, daughter of John and Rosina (Knapp) Root, who 
was born Sept. 20, 1814, died April 6, 1893. She was 
a descendant of Thomas Root, who was one of the first 
settlers of Northampton, Mass., and was one of the "pil- 
lars" of the church when it was first organized in that 
town. 

He passed his childhood days in West Chesterfield, 
Mass., where he was born. When he was about twenty- 
one years of age, he hired out to Mr. Moody who owned 
and operated a large farm and tannery located in Roberts 
Meadow which is a part of Northampton, Mass. The 
first two years or so of his married life, he passed in 
West Farms, also a pai't of Northampton, Mass., after 
which, he returned to Roberts Meadow and purchased 
the place where his wife was born, buying out the other 
heirs. He was very shrewd in his business ventures, 
and became a very successful farmer. Besides operating 
the farm, he had charge of all the roads in the western 
half of the town. At another time, he had the charge 
of some of the construction work on the first reservoir 
built by the town. 

It is told that when he started out in life at the 
age of twenty-one, he had just three cents in his pocket, 
and all he was worth at the time of his death, he had 
accumulated from his own efforts and with his good wifes 
assistance, besides having brought up a family of eight 
children.

private, passing through the different grades and

A., Ill Pennsylvania Volunteers; he was killed in 
action at Dallas, Georgia (in Sherman's Cam- 
paign) while leading his men, May 25, 1864; he 
was buried in Marietta and Atlanta National 
Cemetery; unmarried. 

He was wounded severely, sustaining a shattered 
knee at the battle of Antietam, and as soon as 
he was able, he was granted a furlough, and 
went home on crutches, with a limb out of shape 
badly but cheerful and full of hope. Arriving 
there he would lay on the lounge, his mother 
would massage and press gently on the crooked 
limb, which slowly began to yield to her skillful 
and faithful treatment. One day while perform- 
ing this duty, she suddenly said "Martillus, if I 
save and straighten your limb, what will you 
do, go back?" His prompt reply was, "yes 



3'28 TODD FAMILY 

mother, I shall go back." His mother was loyal 
to her countiy, though her answer belied her 
words said, " I do not know about that Martillus, 
perhaps I better not straighten your limb." But 
her mothers heart compelled her to work faith- 
fully until he was able to rejoin his regiment, 
and some months afterwards was killed instantly, 
in action, one bullet going through his heart, 
another cutting the great artery of the neck. 
Great was the consternation when the sad news 
reached his people at home, and filled them with 
anxiety as to the safety of his brother, Hollis, 
who was still at the front.

1912, in Plattsmouth, Neb. She was a sister of ex-Sena- 
tor Samuel L. Thomas, who is now (1910) living in Long 
Beach, Cal. 

Mr. Todd was a very well known and highly esteemed 
citizen of the community in which he lived. He had 
lived in Plattsmouth, Neb., since 1857, when he first 
arrived in that region and took up a block of land 
in the west part of the town and there he passed his 
remaining years and where he was living at the time of 
his death. He was a most estimable man and had a 
great number of friends throughout that section. 



SEVENTH GENERATION 335 

His early days were spent under the home roof where 
the most Christian surroundings existed and where was 
inculcated into him, that Christian spirit which so char- 
acterized him in after life. The house in which he was 
born still stands in Jamestown, N. Y. His father was 
a minister of the Christian or Campbellite faith and the 
young son adopted this faith as his own at an early 
age. After spending his boyhood with his parents in 
New York, he went west to the state of Indiana, where 
he resided for a brief time before going to Plattsmouth. 
At the age of twenty-five he had left Indiana for good 
and had cast his fortune with the new prairie territory 
of Nebraska. Here he laid the foundation to his future 
success and here he reared his family, six children lived 
to maturity and two others died young. 

In politics, Mr. Todd was a Republican and had taken 
a deep interest in the politics of the country. He was 
one of the original Republicans who stood for the policies 
of the party from it's formation in the fifties and to the 
end he had adhered closely to those principles. He had 
been many times honoi-ed by his party with seats in con- 
ventions and was generally recognized as a wheel-horse 
of the organization.

Gideon^ Michael-, Christopher^ born May 8, 1833, in

ag-ed about eighty. Mari-ied Emma Green. 

He was of a sanguine temperament, a bright, sunny 
disposition, and with good health, he appeared a much 
younger man. Optimistic in his views, he anticipated 
with undaunted energy and courage, a very happy old 
age in his new home and its surroundings. 

At an early age, he took a trip nearly around the 
world, visiting many important places. On his return, 
he went into the mining district of California, where he 
mined for gold for two years, at the end of which time 
he returned to his old home, and later engaged in the 
manufacture of inks and perfumery, with the late A. W. 
Harrison, of Philadelphia, Penn., while in connection with 
this business, they conducted a retail store in New York 
City. 

At the breaking out of the civil war, he enlisted in 
the 82nd regiment Pennsylvania Volunteer Militia, later 
on he became its quartermaster with the rank of Lieuten- 
ant. Mrs. Todd was with him in the forward movement 
of the ai-my from Frederick City, Marjiand, to Warring- 
ton, Virginia, and spent the winter of 1863-64, in camp 
with him on the Rappahannock river, near Brandy Sta- 
tion. Va., where he was promoted to the office of commis- 
sary of subsistence of the Reserve Artillery of the army 
of the Potomac, with the rank of Captain. 



342 TODD FAMILY 

At the close of the war he returned to Philadelphia, 
where he resumed his old business at which he continued 
until the year 1901. 

He was an active member of G. A. R., Meade Post 
No. 1, of Philadelphia, Penn. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, was 
also a member of the same post. At the death of General 
Grant, he was appointed on a committee of twelve, to 
arrange for the funeral and burial services. This com- 
mittee also served as honorary pall-bearers, walking on 
either side of the casket when it was taken to the tomb 
on Riverside Drive, New York, N. Y. 

Seeking a new home for the benefit of his two grand- 
sons in an agricultural district, Mr. Todd after traveling 
through Florida and not finding what just suited his 
ideas for a business life for them, at last settled upon 
Ridgely, Md., with the benefits of the fine new place for 
them to locate, which also pleased the parents of the boys, 
they soon removed thither.

and Emeline (Main) Terrell, who was born Jan. 20, 1837, 
in Cortland, N. Y., died Dec. 18, 1911, in Alden, Iowa. 

After their marriage they made their home in the 
same house where Mr. Todd had been born twenty-three 
years before and there in the same home the three oldest 
children were born. For eleven years they resided at 
Homer, N. Y., and then in the spring of 1869, they moved 
to Iowa and settled on the farm west of the town (Alden) 
where the two youngest children were born and it was 
while living there that the son Ernest died. In the 
spring of 1892, Mr. and Mrs. Todd decided to quit farm-

and Mary Alden (Wilder) Loomis, who was born Nov. 
10, 1856, in Cambridge, Mass. 

He is a graduate of Amherst College and a descend- 
ant of the celebrated divine, Jonathan Edwards. After 



SEVENTH GENERATION 849 

graduation he was appointed to a position at the Naval 
Observatory, Washington, D. C. He was afterwards 
appointed Prof, of Astronomy and Director of the Ob- 
sei-vatory at Amherst, Mass., and also Prof, of Astronomy 
and Higher Mathematics at Smith College, Northami> 
ton, Mass. He received the degree of Ph. D. and has 
been placed in charge of eight scientific expeditions, in- 
cluding, among others, those relating to the transit of 
Venus, the study of Mars, and eclipses of the sun. 

Prof. Todd being made chief of numerous astro- 
nomical expeditions, Mrs. Todd began to accompany her 
husband to many and unusual parts of the world. Spend- 
ing several months in Europe in 1885, they went in 1887, 
to Japan, Prof. Todd conducting thither a scientific ex- 
pedition to observe the eclipse of Aug. 19th. Several 
other expeditions intervening, they returned again to the 
flowery kingdom in 1896, sailing there in the schooner 
yatch Coronet, and making observations of the eclipse 
of Aug. 29th, from the extreme northern part of the em- 
pire, bordering on the Sea of Okhotsk, among the hairy 
Ainus, aborigines of Japan. Mrs. Todd, on this occasion, 
reached a point farther north in the Japanese possessions 
than any foreign woman had ever attained. And here 
she made special study, ethnological and otherwise, of 
the Ainu. In 1900, Prof. Todd was once more in charge 
of an eclipse expedition; she accompanying him to Bar- 
bary in northern Africa, making headquarters at the 
rarely visited city of Tripoli, where a wonderful view 
of the sun's corona (May 28th) was observed through 
the cloudless desert air. Here she made a study of des- 
ert life, women in the harems and Roman remains. In 
1901, Prof. Todd conducted an exj^edition to a small island 
(Singkep) off the east coast of Sumatra, v/here the long- 
est eclipse ever observed occurred on May 18th. On 
this occasion a complete circuit of the world was made, 
going via Atlantic and Mediterranean and returning by 
the Pacific, visiting on the way, Borneo, Siam, the Phil- 
ippines, China, Japan, and the Hawaiian Islands. In 
1905, Tripoli was once more the scene of an eclipse when 
both took an active part in its operations. In 1907, 



350 TODD FAMILY 

Prof. Todd conducted an expedition (taking with him the 
great 18-inch Amherst equatorial telescope) to the ele- 
vated pampa of Chili, for the purpose of studying Mars 
at opposition, in that exceptional steady air ; and on this 
occasion Mrs. Todd made a special study, in addition 
to the main purpose of the expedition, of the remains 
of old Inca civilization, especially in Peru and at high 
regions among the Andes. 

Each are the authors of numerous publications on 
astronomical subjects, and write articles relating to as- 
tronomy for various magazines. 

Mrs. Todd gives drawing room talks, and for private 
Schools, Clubs and Colleges, on popular astronomy, 
travel and literary subjects, some fifty to eighty each 
season. She founded the Amherst Chapter, Daughters 
of the American Revolution, and founded also the Am- 
herst Historical Society, of which she is President.

Orrin Kirtland Todd", (William", Simeon'', Joel*, 
Ithamai-', Michael-, Christopher') born Dec. 6, 1833, died 
March 14, 1879, married Ellen Jane, daughter of Elhan- 
an and Ellen (Kelly) Dewey, who was born June 23, 
1840, died Oct. 23, 1908. 

Mr. Todd was born under the friendly shelter of the 
ancestral roof at the middle-eastern slope of Mount Car- 
mel not many miles from New Haven, Conn. Several 
generations of the family had succeeded to the same spot 
of ground, and three had used the same dwelling with 
its broad doors, easy ascending staircases and immense 
fire-places, its fine breadth of exterior and its great and 
hospitable rooms. This manor was maintained by a 
large acreage of well-tilled, rich and productive lands 
covering an extensive scope of both the mountain-side 
and of the deep loamed valley below, and had yielded 
ample incomes to all so fortunate as to be within the 
chaimed circle of this potent colonial patronymic. 

Kirtland, as he was called, inherited the genius of 
his people for both agriculture and skill in mechanics. 
He also had some apitude for business, but more than all 
else was he a patriot and in a quiet detemiined manner 
always stood for the Constitution and the Flag ; and these 
convictions he gave liberally to his six sons and three 
daughters. His father's intense spiritual insight, for 
William Manning was a great christian and a cultured 
gentleman of unlimited hospitalities, which was also Kirt- 
land's pre-natal legacy from out a splendid well-lived and 
nobly adorned past to this active new group of boys and 
girls as will be seen from the following records which 
have been modestly and loyally verified. 

Orrin Kirtland Todd was early in his married life 
associated socially and in mechanics at Quinipiac — then 
an important industrial village with its own church and 
school on the confines of Wallingford, North Haven and 
Hamden — with J. N. Pierpont, afterwards member of the 
Legislature, Robert Wallace, David Stevens and William 
D. Hall. These men launched out from there and each

made his individual mark in the use of his initiative, two 
of them becoming world-famous. 

Mr. Todd's war record was with Company B., of the 
Twenty-seventh Regiment, Connecticut Volunteers and he 
was honorably discharged at the expiration of his term 
of service. The war hardships so debilitated and under- 
mined his powers of endurance, however, that he lived 
to be but 46 years of age, passing away March 14, 1879, 
after an illness of only four days, and a company of life- 
long friends from among whom Roswell Q. Morse, Jona- 
than Neugent, Dennis M. Morris and Elijah D. Russell — 
all well-known citizens of Wallingford and of certain and 
peculiar prominence — sorrowfully and lovingly observed 
the final honors at his burial. His pathway had not been 
strewn with roses but he is believed to have done the best 
he could and he held the friendship of the multitude. 
Several farms had yielded luxuriantly to his management, 
his handiwoi'k enriched the output of four of the great 
manufacturing plants of the state, yet he had spent all 
his life, excepting his war-days, in his native county, 
three of whose noted towns — Wallingford, Hamden and 
Cheshire — cornered in the front yard of his home. 

His faithful wife, Ellen Jane Dewey Todd, a tire- 
less, ambitious, noble-hearted and accomplished christian 
woman of Cymbri-Celtic, (Welsh-Irish) extraction stood 
loyally by him in every trying hour and with him was 
glad in his successes. She was totally absorbed in a 
supreme regai'd for her husband and his children, all 
of whom she had born to him, to whose welfare she un- 
ceasingly gave all the thoughts of her heart. She sur- 
vived him 29 years and to her invincible energy is due 
much of the personal effect which flowed out of the col- 
lective life of this family of Todds. Her contribution 
has been a high value, and her passing away October 23, 
1908, was profoundly mourned. From very early in life 
she was an earnest member of the Congregational Church, 
and her pastor officiated at her interment.

1777. Martin Bele, was a loyal, loving-hearted man, m. 
a charming and competent wife, established a 
good home, became ill and gradually wore him- 
self into a strange decline and despondency. He 
disappeared in 1899 and has never been heard 
from since. He was the largest man of the 
family. Ambitious, humorous, talented. All 
possible search was made for him but without 
avail. Like his father he had hosts of friends 
who, for many years, could not give him up and 
who still lament his strange vanishing.

opportunity with Frances Adelaide, in the matter 
of education and cultivation in music. Most of her 
life has been spent in Conn. These two younger 
sisters have been together in not only their early 
domestic years, but because of an extreme fond- 
ness each has always felt for the other have tried 
to be as much associated as possible in every 
way. Consequently they live but a few doors 
from each other still, and move together in much 
the same community and social circles. Each 
are brunettes and their lively wit and cordial 
manner has given them a universal acquaintance 
in the old home town. 
Edward Tompkins was an active member of Co. 
K., 2nd Regiment C. N. G., and was discharged 
a Sergeant. He is said to have been a most ex- 
cellent shot at the target practice on the rifle 
range and as unusually good in drill work. He 
has followed the silver industry most of his life

in which he is regarded as an adept in several

bit, which Nellie at the present time (1919) is 
still continuing. Both are active members in the

the social grooves in which they move. They 
have been prospered and own their home. Nellie 
and Frances are still practically inseparables. 
Each is member of the same chapter of the Order 
of the Eastern Star and are active in everything 
that will advance community progress. They 
are each skilled in the use of the key board and 
have pleasant voices, Nellie singing in church 
choirs for many years. As up-to-date women 
they feel a most delightful, conscious responsi- 
bility in all affairs of the public interest, both 
local and National, and have proved themselves 
true daughters of their fathers's in all matters 
constitutional and in a free expression of patri- 
otic opinion.

Seth Henry Todd*, (Isaac', Moses'', Hezekiah^ Caleb*, 
Samuel^ Samuel-, Christopher') born Nov. 23, 1833, in 
Wakeman, Ohio, died May 2, 1914, in Wakeman, 0., 
married March 18, 1860, Martha Elizabeth, daughter of 
Cyrus and Mary Ann (Burrill) Strong, who was born 
Aug., 1836. 

He was a farmer and stock raiser all his life. He 
attended Oberlin College; was a lecturer at Farmer's 
Institutes; was president of the Wakeman Bank from 
the time of its foundation in 1892, until his death. 

The following is Mr. Todd's obituary: 

Seth Henry Todd was a pioneer child, born Nov. 
22, 1833, in the early days of the settlement of the West- 
ern Reserve. He lived his entire life, in Wakeman, Ohio, 
with the exception of eighteen months, which was spent 
near Topeka, Kansas, at the time of the border troubles. 

He obtained his education in the schools of Wakeman 
Township and Oberlin College. He was for a short time 
a successful teacher. 

He was the second child in a family of five children 
of Isaac and Fanny (Booth) Todd, who were charter 



378 TODD FAMILY 

members of the Second Congregational Church, of Wake- 
man, also members of the First Congregational Church. 
This early environment may in a measure account for his 
sterling integrity of character. His children's and grand- 
children's earliest recollections of him are his stories 
woven about those early days. 

Mr. Todd joined the church in 1850, but felt he had 
experienced a change of heart at the early age of 11 years. 
All his years were so closely associated with his church 
that it seemed a part of his life, and in a letter written 
two weeks before his death, he spoke of the last Com- 
munion Sabbath, when twenty-five young people were 
taken into the church, as the happiest day in his life, 
and that his faith in God was renewed. 

He served the church in the capacity of trustee 
for half a century, being elected to this position in 1864, 
and for more than a quarter of a century he was super- 
intendent of the Sabbath-school. At the time of his 
death he was deacon. He gave of all he had, money, time 
and energy in the erecting of the present Congregational 
Church edifice, being chairman of the building committee 
at that time. 

Mr. Todd was a progressive, scientific farmer. He 
was a member of the Grange and at their meetings re- 
ceived and gave incentive to the betterment of agricul- 
tural and stock interests. This activity has given him 
■ prominence among stock men. 

He gained a wide acquaintance with men in his public 
and institute work, having lectured in every county in 
Ohio and in Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania 
and Maryland. In this work his good cheer and comrad- 
ship won him many friends who mourn his loss. 

As President of the Wakeman Bank Co., since its 
organization he has earnestly tried to merit the confidence 
placed in him. 

In temperance reform he was active and used his 
influence to overthrow the evil. 

Mr. Todd was a man of years who had never grown 
old in spirit, he was fond of children and young people, 
ajid interested himself in all lines of work for the ad- 
vancement and greater good of the communities interests. 



EIGHTH GENERATION 379 

He was an inspiration to those in his home, and 
all with whom he came in contact, to live a complete well 
rounded life. 

Mr. Todd had so often expressed the desire to leave 
this life without extended illness, when he ceased to be 
active, and as he expressed it, useless. God was very 
g-ood to him and on May 2, 1914, at the noon hour, after 
only three short hours of pain, and being administered 
to, he turned himself on his side and quietly breathed 
his life away. It did not seem like death, but that he 
liad been taken. 

To err is human, to love divine, and through his 
great love for mankind and the influence of eighty years 
God gave him may he still live in our midst. 

This veteran farmer and swine breeder died sud- 
denly of heart trouble, at his home near Wakeman, Huron 
County, Ohio, aged 81 years. For a quarter of a century 
previous to about a decade ago Mr. Todd was foremost 
among Ohio swine breeders and exhibitors, having de- 
veloped the Todd Improved Chester White. Increasing 
years did not extinguish his interest in the breed which 
he did so much to develope, for he continued to raise 
hogs to the very last. He was also a sheep breeder and 
exhibitor of note. As a farmer's institute lecturer for 
many years, he interested and helped hundreds of Ohio 
farmers to grow better hogs and to put the business on a 
better basis. For a great many years he was a regular 
and valued contributor to the Ohio farmer. Mr. Todd 
is survived by Mrs. Todd, four daughters and two sons, 
one daughter having died many years ago. One of the 
sons. Charles, now owns the farm settled by his gi-and- 
father Todd. His other son, Albert, owns the first farm 
purchased by his father, the latter having bought a 
smaller one in his later years, which he managed and 
worked every day up to May 2, 1914.

Mr. Todd was born in Wakeman, 0., and died at 
his home in Florence, Erie County, 0. 

Below is Mr. Todd's obituary : 

At the age of eight years he moved with his parents 
to the home he occupied. This farm has been his resi- 
dence over 54 years. In his younger days, he was a 
student in Oberlin College, and about that time he taught 
school during the winter months. He was a great fancier 
of poultry and pet stock, and began to gather fine speci- 
mens in 1868. His first exhibition was at the State Fair 
held in Toledo, Ohio, and there he won nearly all the 
prizes for which he tried. His next exhibit was at the 
Erie County Fair, at Sandusky, O., and nearly all the 
premiums he showed for went his way. He took his 
collection to the first great poultry show in northern O., 
at Cleveland and met in competition, the largest breeders 
and fanciers in the United States. While he carried off 
many prizes, together with the sweepstakes, he was not 
satisfied, and at that show he began to strengthen his 
collection by buying the first pair of Toulouse geese ever 
in Ohio, for which he paid $35. He also made many 
other valuable additions. I well remember what he said 
about the time, that certain fanciers in Illinois were re- 
ceiving 100 letters a day and said, "I believe I can do the 
same," and he did do even better than that. 

In the '70's he was called to Indianapolis, Ind., to 
a great show for the west, and to deliver an address 
before the fanciers of Indiana, both of which he did. Just 
after this, there was to be another poultry show at 
Buffalo, N. Y. This was open to the world, and he laid 
his plans to win and carry the banner that had always 
been kept in the east, back to the west with him, and 
as an illustration of his ability as a judge of fancy poultry, 
I will give one little incident. At the Indianapolis show, 



382 TODD FAMILY 

out of that vast collection, he selected and bought one 
bird of the Light Brahma variety, and this one he took 
with his collection, which had by this time grown to be 
almost a show of itself, to the Buffalo show. This bird 
won first prize of §15, and sold it to a man in Canada for 
$100, in gold. He came with many prizes from this show 
and truly bringing the banner with him for after this, 
his sales were as great east as west. He imported seven 
ducks and two geese from England, the charges on this 
lot being $95, but he often said the mention of this im- 
portation in different poultry and other papers paid him 
well for his expense and trouble. He made an exhibition 
of his poultry at the Centennial Exposition held at Phila- 
delphia in 1876, and won the prize for the best collection, 
of $100, given by the State of Pennsylvania, also many 
medals and prizes from the association. His shipments 
extended to every state and territory of the United States, 
Canada and South America. The improvements in poul- 
try that have taken place all over this broad land for 
the last thirty years from the old common fowl to the 
fine Braham's, Plymouth Rocks and many other kinds 
of both land and water fowls, can be traced lai'gely to the 
skilful management of this one of the earliest pioneers 
in the business. He partly discontinued the business 
about 1880 and took up fancy cattle with which he was 
successful. He took quite a part in literary work and 
many of his writings have found their way into the 
various publications and periodicals. He, with the aid of 
others, stalled and edited the "Poultry Nation," a live 
poultry paper of the '70's. He assisted in making the 
American Standard of Excellence, a book which, if not, 
should be in every poultry fanciers home. He was a 
life member of the American Poultry Association, also 
a member of many poultry and other societies. 

Previous to his first sickness which was more than 
two years before he died, he was called to many places 
to deliver addresses at horticultural and institute meet- 
ings. He was a strong temperance man and in that cause 
was never idle. He was ever ready to assist the poor 
and unfortunate and no one was turned away from his 



EIGHTH GENERATION §8,^ 

home that came asking for rest and refreshment. His 
reUgious views can readily be found in the following 
lines which he wrote on the death of his mother. "At 
the dawn of day, mother closed her eyes in death foi'ever 
to the scenes of this life but awoke to behold the dawn 
of a fairer morning in the sweet life of the Great Beyond." 
The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. F. 
Lewis, at the old home and the remains were laid to 
rest in the family lot in Maple Grove Cemetery, Vermil- 
lion, Ohio.

EIGHTH GENERATION 385 

1827, died Oct. 9, 1899, married Jan. 1, 1855, Elizabeth 
Gill, who was born Aug. 11, 1834, died April 8, 1920. 

The following biographical sketch was taken from 
"North Haven Annals," by Sheldon B. Thorpe. 

"He has always followed the profession of his father, 
grandfather and quite likely his more distant ancestors. 
Although he has managed his farm and dairy business 
with the most scrupulous attention, he has found time 
and opportunity to sei've his townsmen in many ways. 
With a single exception (Andrew F. Austin) he can count 
more years of public service than any other citizen. He 
was elected Grand Juror in 1864, and has filled that del- 
icate responsibility continually since, with honor to him- 
self and credit to the peace of the community. Also, 
since 1875, he has served as town treasurer. The duties 
of a selectman are perfectly familiar to him, and in 1883 
he was made a member of the General Assembly. Pa- 
triotism, temperance and religion have always found in 
him an ardent supporter." 

He lived in North Haven, Conn.

and full of good wishes. They lived in Woodbridge, 
Conn. 

Dwight Ely Todd like his father was a successful 
farmer. His father and he carried on farming together 
on the old fanrx in Bethany, Conn., very successfully. As 
regards business judgement and ability, it may be safe 
to say that there have not been anyone of the Leonard 
Todd line who had surpassed him. When he died he 
had accumulated a goodly fortune. It was due to hard 
work, to thrift and frugality to a considerable extent, 
but also due to his excellent judgement in placing money 
where it yeilded large returns. Like his father and 
mother he was a strong churchman. He very liberally 
endowed Christ Church, Bethany, and always gave gen- 
erously to the church in other ways because he fiiTnly 
believed in it.

James Alfred Todd^ (Alfi-ed% Caleb«, Caleb', Ste- 
phen*, SamueP, SamueP, Christopher') born Jan. 1, 1838, 
in Marcellus, Anondaga County, N. Y., married Sept. 17, 
1863, Marien W., daughter of Rev. Gabriel and Sarah 
Burdick (Grey) Smith, who was born July 12, 1841, in 
New York City. 

Mr. Todd, when less than year old was taken by his 
parents in Sept., 1838, to Nottawa Township, St. Joseph 
County, Mich., where he attended the county school and 
then two winters in High School in Sturgis, Mich. 

He has been a farmer most of his life, and at the 
pi-esent time (1913) has a ranch near Williston, Noilh 
Dakota. 

He inherited from his mother, a college bred woman, 
a fondness for history and literature, and the ability to 
write and converse with interest. His father was a man 
of sterling integrity, universally admired for his honesty 
and justice. Both pai'ents were great Bible students and 
brought up their family in strict religious observance. 
He is a Deacon in the Congregational Church in Williston, 
N. Dak. 

He has been a Prohibitionist the greater part of his 
life and neither he nor any of his children drink or smoke. 

He enlisted in Company A., 11th Michigan Volunteer 
Infantry, Aug. 24, 1861, and was mustered out of service, 
Feb. 24, 1863, at Murfreesboro, Tenn. He has always 
been loyal to the G. A. R. and for over thirty years was 
secretary of the 11th Michigan Infantry, which held re- 
unions annually in Southern Michigan. He still retains 
an erect, soldierly carriage though growing slower in step. 

Mrs. Todd's father was a M. E. minister and was 
born in Polksville, N. Y., six miles east of Seneca Lake, 
N. Y., April 5, 1805. He was of Dutch, English and 
Scotch descent, and a descendant of the Wickes of 
Scotland. Mrs. Todd's mother, Sarah Burdick Grey 
was born Jan. 13, 1813, in New York City. She traced 
her ancestry back to Lady Jane Grey, the "nine day 
Queen" of England. She inherited a great desire for 
reading and became a thorough student. She fii'st at- 



406 TODD FAMILY 

tended school in Reynoldsville, N. Y., and later a district 
school in Michigan. She was a student at the High 
School in Sturgis, Mich., for two or three winters, and 
later completed a four year Chautauqua Course, while 
her children were growing up. She began teaching when 
she was but fifteen years old and continued at it off and 
on until three years after her marriage, her work being 
highly spoken of. She was a great worker in the W. C. 
T. U. and in the Presbyterian Church. Also a Good 
Templar. 

A severe attack of Pneumonia and chronic Bronchitis 
left her an invalid and for the last half dozen years she 
has been confined to the house very largely.

408 TODD FAMILY 

Nottawa, Mich., married Jan. 23, 1878, Augusta Mar- 
garet, daughter of John and Mary (Engle) Allman, who 
was born Sept. 20, 1855. 

Mr. Todd was born on a farm near the village of 
Nottawa, St. Joseph County, Mich., the youngest of ten 
children, all of whom were supported upon forty-five 
acres of cleared land, which was the total area that 
was practical for tillage on his father's eighty acre 
farm. Their lives were necessarily plain, but extremely 
happy. For the first few years after he entered school, 
he walked one and one-half miles to the "red school house" 
and afterwards a little school house was built upon their 
own farm, which he attended for a number of years, work- 
ing upon the farm when not in school. Afterwards, he 
studied at the High School at Sturgis, seven miles distant, 
where he graduated. Meantime when eighteen years old 
he engaged with his next older brother, Oliver, in an 
experiment in the growing and distillation of peppermint, 
which started with a very few acres only at first, but as 
it appeared that the crude methods thus far employed 
in the business were susceptible of material improvement, 
and his brother desiring that he should assume his 
(Oliver's) interest in the business, Mr. Todd set to work 
at once, to invent new appliances, and to perfect improved 
processes. He thus was able to make the business suc- 
cessful, and has continued it to the present time, the 
business having constantly grown until the A. M. Todd 
Company, of which he is the president, operates and con- 
trols an area of approximately 10,000 acres devoted 
largely to the growing of peppermint, spearmint and 
other aromatic and medicinal plants, and to the extraction 
of volatile oils, alkaloids, etc., which these plants contain. 
This company has become the most extensive essential 
oil producers of the world. 

His father was, in politics, a republican, and Mr. 
Todd's first vote was cast with that party both from 
environment and principle, but soon after it became ap- 
parent that certain interests had taken possession of the 
machineiy of the party for private gain, and the prohi- 
bition party then being in process of formation and its 




ALBERT MAY TODD, NO. 1295 



EIGHTH GENERATION 409 

principles being in accord with his ideas, he joined the 
ranks of the party, and voted its ticket for about twenty- 
years. During much of this time he studied the question 
of public ownership of public utilities and the issue of 
the nation's m^oney directly by the government. These 
principles which others endorsed with him were included 
in the platform of the prohibition party. But in 1896, 
the pa)-ty rejected them, and Mr. Todd, feeling that social 
justice could not be secu)'ed by prohibition alone, left 
the prohibition party and united with other citizens in 
organizing the national party which included all of these 
principles in its platform. Having been nominated by 
this party as its candidate for Congress, and being en- 
dorsed by three other parties advocating similar princi- 
ples, he was elected as the Representative of the Third 
District of Michigan to Congress. During his term of 
service in the House of Representatives, he took special 
interest in the affairs of the railroads and of other public 
utilities which by their nature are necessary to the lives 
and happiness of all the people, the operation of which 
he looked upon as one of the most natural and necessary 
functions of government. 

His interest in public ownership increasing, he ar- 
ranged to make a thorough study of its operations in 
foreign countries, and accordingly sailed in May, 1912, 
visiting thirteen countries of Europe, returning in Aug- 
ust, 1913, being more than ever impressed with the fact 
that public ownership is the only way to secure economic 
justice and political purity. During his trip, he had the 
honor and pleasure of being entertained by men high in 
the councils of foreign governments who extended every 
liossible facility for investigation, the opportunities for 
which he gladly made use of, so that in addition to secur- 
ing a vast array of original and official data, he was able 
to personally take over one thousand photographs showing 
the railroads, telephone, parcel post, gas works, electric 
plants, water works, schools, hospitals, banks, theaters, 
etc., etc., all under public ownership, either national or 
municipal. The results of these investigations he has 
already placed in part before the American people. 



410 TODD FAMILY 

Soon after his return from Europe the Public Owner- 
ship League of America was organized largely through 
his initiative. He became its president and has since 
been repeatedly re-elected to this office, the last election, 
prior to the writing of this sketch, having been held in 
November, 1919. The general office of this League is in 
Chicago, but during the years 1918-19, Mr. Todd main- 
tained the president's office in Washington, D. C, where 
special attention was given to aiding the government in 
working out the railroad and other national utility prob- 
lems in the interest of democracy. 

He is a member of twenty-six various other scientific, 
commercial and political associations, a list of which may 
be found in the issue of "Who's Who" for 1919. 

Mr. Todd early acquired a love of literature and the 
fine arts, and now possesses a large and rare art museum 
and library of books in all branches of literature, history, 
political economy, the fine arts, as well as first editions 
of ancient classics, rare books from the presses of the 
world's greatest printers, and wonderful hand-painted 
bird books, etc. Twenty-five rooms in his home and 
office building are filled with the museum and library. 

His permanent home address is Kalamazoo, Mich.

plantation at Mentha, Mich., (near Kalamazoo) 
where they reside. Mr. Woodhams is a graduate 
of the University of Michigan. Mrs. Woodhams 
was graduated from Kalamazoo College and the 
University of Chicago. Before her marriage she 
twice accompanied her parents on their trips to 
the Old World. She shares interest with her 
father in art, literature and economics.

in France as a Lieutenant in the American Ex- 
peditionary Forces in the Great War. He sailed 
for France on Christmas Day, 1917, and upon 
his arrival there attended the Field Artillery 
School at Saumur, France, and later at the Trac- 
tor Artillery School at St. Maur. His qualifica- 
tions were such that he was retained as Acting

he was engaged in instructional work and in 
authority as Judge Advocate in military trials 
when the war closed. Later he was transfered

ity in the U. S. Navy and served through the war. Short- 
ly after the war, he was again commissioned in the Navy, 
and died of yellow fever while attending the sick, during 
an epidemic at Pensacola Navy Yard, in 1874. He was 
then Acting Past Assistant Surgeon. For some years 
he practiced medicine while a civilian, in Onondaga 
County, N. Y., but the greater pail of his professional 
life was devoted to the service. 

The following was taken from the Baltimore Sun: 
"Died in Pensacola, Fla., acting Surgeon, George 
Brainard Todd, M. D. He was born in Marcellus, Onon- 
daga County, N. Y., and graduated at the University 
of New York, at Albany. He also received collegiate 
diplomas from other schools of medicine, the last from 
the University of Maryland, in which State he resumed 
practice after the termination of the war of the rebellion. 
In the early part of these troubles, he volunteered as an 
assistant surgeon in the army, and was associated with 
the accomplished Surgeon and Medical Director, Tripler, 
from whom he received most gratifying notice of pro- 
fessional services and manly worth. His self possession 
in danger, his devotion to duty, and his patience in the 
surgery of resection, with the desire to save limbs to 
the wounded, comm.anded the enconiums of his superiors, 
and the gratitude of the unfortunate. Doctor Todd was 
in many sharp engagements in the field, and in the Navy, 
during the closing years of the civil war, in practical iron- 
clad service. He not only gave his full professional abili- 
ties to each branch of our defense, with the pure patriot- 
ism of duty, but he combined those with the Samaritan 
tenderness of the true Physician, and when the cloud of 
war hovered over the seizure of the Virginius, he again 
offered in sacrifice, domestic happiness and pecuniary 
profit, and volunteered, without reserve, for duty. An 
ornament to his God-like profession, he has fallen in 



EIGHTH GENERATION 4lS 

the path of duty, and in the hearts of those who knew 
him best, there will be deep grief, that so bright an ex- 
ample of manhood has been withdrawn from earth. His 
character was warmly appreciated and beloved by the 
humblest in oflicial place. The lowest in intellect, and 
the most obtuse in perception, recognized him as an hon- 
est, faithful man in the discharge of duty and the obliga- 
tions of friendship. But "Tis not all of death to die," 
and in this is our comfort and our hope."

he was about ten years of age, the family moved to 
Dewitt, Onondaga County, N. Y. He attended the Acad- 
emy at Moravia, N. Y. In July, 1861, at the outbreak of 
the civil war, he enlisted at Syracuse, N. Y., and became 
a member of Company B., 3rd New York Cavalry, and 
saw much hard service until early in 1862, when he was 
discharged for physical disability. He survived the very 
severe illness incurred in the service, however, and after 
the war moved with his parents to Spencerport, Monroe 
County, N. Y., where they purchased a farm. There he 
lived until 1908, when he retired and moved to Rochester, 
N. Y. 

At the time of her marriage, Mrs. Todd was a teacher 
of music in a private academy in Haddonfield, Fenn.

Mr. Todd and all of his brothers settled in the middle 
west, four including himself went to live in St. Louis, 
Mo., where he practiced his profession, and became an 
authority in real estate transfers, there being much con- 
fusion over titles on account of the actions of the differ- 
ent governments (French, Spanish, American) in the 
matter of land grants. He was also prominent in local 
politics. He was one of the board that framed the City 
Charter, which has been only the last year, supei-seded by 
one more equal to the growth of the City.

George Todd', (Ira', Jehiel**, Stephen-', Stephen*,

Hartwick, N. Y., died in 1906, married Jan. 6, 1842, 
Alice Orne, daughter of Samuel and Abigail (Low) Davis, 
who was born June 7, 1818, in Weare, N. H. She was 
a sister of his brother Washington Todd's wife, Mary 
Low Davis. Her mother, Abigail Low was a cousin of 
Hon. Seth Low, Ex-Mayor of New York City. 

Mr. Todd went to St. Louis, Mo., to establish the 
business of flour milling, in 1835. Two of his brothers, 
Charles and Washington, came later and were associated 
with him. They were the pioneers in that thriving busi- 
ness, and the firm became known over all the great 
country tributary to St. Louis. On this venture to St. 
Louis, he left New York City by boat for New Orleans, 
thence up the Mississippi to his destination. He took 
with him, a good supply of mill materials, including burr 
stones, then used exclusively in the best mills. Later 
he imported these direct from France, also the silk bolting 
cloths. On his way up the Mississippi, the boat he was 
on was caught, with others, in the ice a little above the 
confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. He made 
his way to St. Louis on horseback on the Illinois side, 
crossing the river at St. Louis in an open yawl through 



422 TODD FAMILY 

floating ice. The pioneers were a sturdy stock. He lived 
to see his 91st year, was seldom sick, had no bad habits, 
was in every way abstemious and a healthy liver. Of 
such was the nobility of our land. Fortunate are those 
of such wholesome and useful ancestry. 

Both Mr. and Mrs. Todd were members of large 
families, he being one in a family of eleven, she being 
in a family of twelve, there being six sisters and five half 
brothers. 

Children : 
2007. Charles Alonzo, b. March 24, 1844, graduated with 
the degree of A. B. from Washington University, 
of St. Louis, Mo., in 1866, also as M. D. from 
Columbia University, of New York City, in 1869, 
and a little later received of Washington Univer- 
sity, the degree of A. M. Immediately after 
graduation in New York, he went to Vienna, 
Austria, which was then the greatest medical 
center of the world. He remained there two years, 
then returned to St. Louis, and immediately start- 
ed upon his professional career; became Profes- 
sor of Anatomy in the Missouri Medical College, 
at St. Louis, Mo., which was the first medical col- 
lege to be established west of the Mississippi 
River. It is now incorporated in the Medical 
Dept. of Washington University. On account of 
his health, he was obliged to give up his practice 
and teaching. He secured the passage of an or- 
dinance opening entrance into their hospital prac- 
tice as internes, only through competitive exam- 
inations, a much needed reform, also, through the 
legislature, secured a statute legalizing the dis- 
section of human bodies. Up to that time, such 
necessary study was effective contrary to law. 
He was active in putting their Humane Society 
for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on an 
active basis, which it has ever since maintained, 
and many other activities in which he was deeply 
interested.

Walter S. Todd went into partnership with three 
of his brothers, Horatio N., Andrew and Ira, and together 
operated a general store in Wenona, 111. Also, he and his 
brother Ira owned and managed a wholesale grocery stoi'e 
in Lasalle, 111., also a flouring mill. This latter business 
seems to have greatly interested the different members 
of this family, as all or nearly all, at one time or another 
became owners or part owners of milling property.

of Kelley's Corners, Delaware County, N. Y. 

In Biographical Review, published in 1895, article 
of Augustus H. Todd, the leading men of Delaware Coun- 
ty, N. Y., there is a very ridiculous fable about Samuel 
Todd the Revolutionary war soldier. Samuel Todd, ac- 
cording to Clarissa, his daughter, lived in Litchfield 
County, Conn. In 1800, she was born there; in 1802, 
the family moved to Middletown, Delaware County, N. 
Y. ; there were six sons and four daughters from 22 down 
to 2 years ; three of them taught school. Now, as his wife, 
Maiy Dudley Todd had 10 children, she could not have 
been the "brave young wife" of the fable. And as her 
father, Capt. John E. Dudley owned the Dudley mansion 
in Wallingford, Conn., it is not likely Mary Dudley Todd 
was poor as the fable tells about. Mary Dudley Todd's 
mother was a Brockett and had property. The fables 
bride and groom had ten children when they moved to 
New York in 1802, Viz. : John, Samuel, Dudley, Lyman, 
Dyer, Burr, Mary, Lucinda, Sally and Clarissa, then in 
1804, Darling was born and in 1807, Isaac was born. 
All lived to grow up but Dyer, who died at the age of 22 
years. 

The above criticism is by Adella Helmershausen.

& Company, dry-goods merchants, their store being on 
Broadway. He continued in this line of business all of 
his active business life, the only interruption being during 
his service in the civil war. He had the misfortune to 
have had a very disastrous fire which destroyed the build- 
ing and contents. Fortunately, however, the loss was 
fully covered by insurance. A peculiar coincidence is re- 
lated concerning this fire. It is told that an insurance in- 
spector had gone very thoroughly over the premises the 
very day of the fire and just before leaving he said, "Mr. 
Todd if everybody kept their premises as carefully as you, 
the insurance companies would never have to worry about 
fires." This remark was made only a few minutes before 
the fire was discovered. Just how the fire started was 
never learned. After the fire, the firm of Hazen, Todd & 
Company continued in business some years longer and 
then dissolved the partnership. Later he managed the 
wholesale dry-goods business in New York of several 
Boston firms. 

For a number of years he was vestry-man of St. 
Thomas Church, Fifth Ave., New York City, of which he 
and Mrs. Todd were members for several years. 

Before the Civil War he was a member of Co. A., 7th 
Regiment, New York Militia, which was one of the first to 
be called to defend Washington, after Fort Sumpter was 
fired on. He served in this regiment seven years and was 
then honorably discharged. During his war service, he 
became very ill and was sent home incapacitated. 

He was a quiet, unostentatious man, devoted to his 
family and his business and never belonged to organiza- 
tions of any kind, not even the G. A. R.

accumulated quite a property. The Rev. Mr. Reynolds, 
her pastor and friend of much of her girlhood, of the 
First Baptist Church officiated at the wedding. 

Mrs. Strauss received a thorough common-school 
education and became a shipper and later an inspector in 
the finished goods department, first at Hall and Elton's 
and afterwards at R. Wallace and Sons, where for years 
her services were retained. Her children were all bom 
in Wallingford, Ct., but were some years later, confirmed 
in the Protestant Episcopal Church of Hamden at Center- 
ville. 

Children : 

I. Jane Caroline Todd, b. April 8, 1889, received a 
high school education and engaged as expert book- 
keeper for her father and brother. She is also 
a very successful teacher of the pianoforte, having 
graduated several large classes. Jane Caroline was 
married Sept. 16, 1920, at St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church in Bridgeport, Conn., to Mr. Granville J. 
Houle an estimable and popular young man of that 
city, and they resided in Stratford, Conn. This 
new family is ideal and their future most promis- 
ing, 
n. Kate Clifford Todd, b. July 14, 1894, graduated 
from high school. She became an adept in the art 
of fine needlework and in many of the comfortable, 
practical ways is an accomplished young woman. 
She was married Sept. 25, 1919, at St. Paul's Epis- 
copal Chui'ch in Bridgeport, Conn., to Mr. James 
Nell, who is an automobile merchant. They have a 
beautiful home in that city. Kate is a regal beauty 
and a most attractive young matron. 
III. Henry John Todd, b. July 7, 1896, graduated from 
high school just prior to the beginning of the world- 
war, in which he served with the Motor-truck 
Branch and was honorably discharged as a ser- 
geant. He is now (1920) associated with his 
father in a garage business in Bridgeport, Conn., 
having a floor space for nearly 100 automobiles.

WRITTEN BY A HUNDRED PENS 
William Elhanan Manning Todd had the usual ups 
and downs of a healthy Connecticut and eastern Ameri- 
can boy in matters temporal, but being of a practical, 
active and vigorous mental makeup which often left him 
high and dry upon the shores of things far future, where 
some swiftly rolling psychological tidal-wave would land 
him away thru the years of coming events, when, in the 
very nature of things, he would sometimes be compelled to 
"hold his bosses," "slow down the train," "change the 
course of his ship," "puncture a tire," or lock his aero- 
plane to a mountain top and "call a halt" for a time. And 
while waiting would plan the next move on the tressel- 
board of the yet unborn days. 

For a number of years the writer of this sketch has 
tried in vain to get bits of his stoiy, being able to secure 
but little, and even now must be content with articles of 
his life work which appeared at different times in the pe- 
)-iodicals and newspapers throughout the length and 
breadth of the United States, and from other authentic 
sources from which the following is eptomized : 

The Rev. William E. M. Todd, archaeologist and lit- 
terateur, is a typical New Englander, and altho spending 
much of his youth in Virginia was educated in Connecti- 
cut schools. 

Always an inveterate reader from his earliest days, 
besides his careful studies he devoured two whole libra- 
ries, one private and one public, a later invaluable asset 
in his chosen vocations. He was ordained in 1890, and 
has preached and lectured from over five hundred popular 
platforms and leading pulpits in twenty-nine of the states 
and the Dominion of Canada; addressed twenty State 
Assemblies ; four interdenominational gatherings and five 
National Conventions ; was member of and addressed fifty 



524 TODD FAMILY 

local and international councils; edited four periodicals, 
issued sixty publications, and over two hundred leading 
journals have published his work ; has addressed forty G. 
A. R. occasions, ten Independence Days, and has spoken 
in more than seventy-five places in his native state. 

He has lectured at a number of institutions of 
learning, occupied on special occasions more than seventy- 
five college town pulpits, held six public discussions and 
has been tendered over forty public receptions. Some of 
his best sermons are said to have been on "Power of 
Choice," Omaha First church, published at Omaha, Cres- 
ton and Brookfield ; "Blessings of Misfortune," published ; 
"Apples of Gold in Pictures of Silver"; "Unity of Re- 
ligion", published at Charleston ; "The Call of the Twen- 
tieth Century", published, and "His Sword is Dipped in 
Heaven", in memoriam of soldiers and sailors lost in the 
Spanish-American war, on request of the National Monu- 
ment Committee and published for them. This was a 
great occasion, the Mayor of the city presiding and the 
Blue and the Gray veterans present in full-dress uniform. 
His Alfredian address, commemorating the one thousandth 
anniversary of the death of England's great formative 
ruler. King Alfred, was published and widely commented 
on, and his pulpit theme on "The Sermon that Christ 
would Preach," while the pastor at Key West, Fla., was 
said to be "the greatest heard in that city in ten years." 

His studies in Arts, Science, Prophecy, Biography and 
Literature being unusual, continuous, arduous and suc- 
cessful, his archaeological researches being principally in 
Asiatic, Egyptian and American antiquities, his demon- 
strations have met with favor. Thrice he has been called 
to education work. He has been a careful disciple of the 
interpretation of the Bible in the beauty of Dr. David 
Swing, the constructiveness of Dr. Lyman Abbott, the opti- 
mism of Dr. R. S. Storrs, and the persistent aggressive- 
ness of the Fathers in the cause of applied Christianity, 
and from willingness to respond to every call he has been 
styled "a minister of the people." His pulpit talks on

spiration," at union and interdenominational meetings 
and from his own pulpit have been commended as most 
timely and helpful; his untiring interest in civil affairs 
has been appreciated by municipal, cormnonwealth and 
national officers, whose communications of hearty accord 
have been of great encouragement to his ministiy. His 
prayer at the conclusion of one of our great wars en- 
titled "Thanks For National Peace," was handsomely en- 
grossed and embossed, and sent to the President, the 
members of the cabinet and also to the Peace Commission 
and was most cordially acknowleged by each. And at 
another time he was given the personal thanks of the 
President and the Secretaiy of War for his Memorial ad- 
dress in defense of the army in the Philippines. 

Contemporaries have mentioned him as a man of un- 
usual scholarly attainments, holding degrees in Art, Law, 
Science, Theology and Music, with two others pending, he 
has been indefatigable in his labors in both school and 
church, as well as in the field of letters, college extension 
and post graduate work. Association with Learned and 
Biographical societies supplied inspiration for growing 
educational enthusiasm, so that even with increasing pul- 
pit endeavors and evangelistic calls, time was found under 
Divine guidance to help plant schools and to assume col- 
lege responsibilities, among which a few are mentioned ; 
lectured at Western School for ministers and at Brookfield 
College, helped to found Mendota College nearly forty 
years ago, had interest in the founding of the University 
of Omaha, and Lincoln Memorial University, all strong 
institutions and doing worthy work. A member of the 
Co-Educational Association of Virginia; lecturer for the 
Farmer's Educational and Co-operative Union of America 
(4,000,000 members) , and director of their Virginia State 
band of 40 pieces. But chiefly individually founding 
and establishing Central College in Virginia, a corpora- 
tion with preparatory schools, literary institute, School of 
Pedagogy, (Normal Training, with Departments of Agri- 
culture and Domestic Science) College of Arts and 



526 TODD FAMILY 

Sciences, School of Religion and Conservatory of Music, 
all standard, acknowledged and accredited in the govern- 
ment. In five years funds were secured, buildings con- 
structed and a student body of over 1400 enrolled — an 
unprecedented result — the assemblies at school and edu- 
cational affairs sometimes numbering from 1,000 to 6,000. 
These associated details resulting in many conversions 
and in much community improvement leads to the strong 
conviction that with proper liberty and Heaven-led initia- 
tive much and lasting good can be doubly productive. 

Dr. Todd was admitted to Holy Orders under an 
exhaustive examination by a foremost body of New Eng- 
land scholars, the clergy of the Rhode Island Association 
of Othordox Congregational Ministers, in the old white- 
domed Beneficent Church, Providence, and has observed 
an unswerving ministry, baptismal waters opening to his 
service for this sacrament from the Naragansett Bay of 
the Atlantic Ocean to the far western coast. He feels 
that the church is more moving and appealing than any 
other modern activity and that every sensible effort pos- 
sible should be prayerfully and persistently maintained to 
effectively bring to the public mind the lasting, enduring 
qualities of a livable Christianity. His whole heart is 
with the church in all her aggressive, pleasant ways to 
awaken a more or less lost race from the sin-slumbering 
of these swiftly flying days. 

Qualifications and work attaining degrees were 
graduate studies, and partly for theses on many themes, 
for numerous phases of activity in the churches and ack- 
nowledged standing in scholarship recognized at different 
times by eminent schoolmen, statesmen and clergymen of 
New England, the South and the West, from among whom 
the several notable signatories below are selected. There 
have been two calls to the legislature, he was twice ap- 
pointed postmaster and a Naval Chaplaincy was offered. 
He edited two national magazines and owned and edited 
an important southern journal with a wide circulation 
and was national correspondent for five standard re- 
ligious periodicals. He was member of the great Eccu- 
menical Council on Foreign Missions in New York City

While pastor with the famous old New Lebanon pul-

York, his first book answering New Testament Critics 
came off the press. Received strong commendation and 
was given wide circulation. He cooperated with the 
mayor of Winchester, England, in the proper observance 
of the 1000th anniversaiy of the death of Alfred the 
Great, (in lieu of the late John Fiske, A.M., LL.B., the 
great American Historian, whose sudden death made va- 
cant his place on the program). The Albany Journal,

gregationalist, et. al., publishing his historic address. 

His memorials have had national consideration. This 
is the church home of the well known Tilden family, the 
body of the great Governor, Samuel J. Tilden, lay in State 
here, and encircling the massive granite base of the monu- 
ment erected to his memory here, are the famous words of 
his memorable speech after the presidential election in 
1876, "I still believe the people." Seven clergymen have 
entered the ministiy from this pulpit. Men eminent in 
letters have ministered here. Chief magistrates of the

nation have worshiped here. It is near the famous sum- 
mer resort "Montepoole" of the popular story "Queechy," 
and the location is called the "Switzerland of America," 
about which cluster many sacred and beautiful mem- 
ories of useful men and women on both sides of the 
ocean. While the Rev. Mr. Todd was pastor here, his 
son was born and was immediately presented, by the good 
ladies of the parish, with an expert nurse from the House 
of Mercy Hospital, at Pittsfield, Mass., and with a sum 
of money to more than pay for the term of her services. 
At his Christening in the old church his name included 
that of his father, his grandfather and his great-grand- 
father, also that of one of his father's predecessors in the 
New Lebanon pulpit, the eminent and beloved Rev. Dr. 
John Todd, so long a New England pastor, and appears on 
the church register as follows : John William Stover Todd, 
and he was rocked in the govenior Tilden cradle altho he 
didn't seem to like it very well. 

The venerable Pittsfield pastor, the Rev. Dr. John 
Todd, (See number 284), had been greatly beloved in the 
New Lebanon parish. He had often preached there on 
special occasions and, about the year 1860, had rededi- 
cated their recently remodeled church edifice — one of the 
most beautiful in America — and some of his great 
sentences were so well remembered as to be quoted verba- 
tim 40 years later when the same building had undergone 
further changes to meet the later needs, and words of 
tender regard were paid to the revered memory of their 
former friend and patron of this stanch and worthy, 
ancient and progressive household of the unyielding and 
all-pervading Faith of the Divine Christ. Deacon Nelson 
S. Gates, a stockholder of the Boston and Albany Rail- 
road, one of eastern New York's most prominent and be- 
loved citizens, a profound Christian and scholarly gentle- 
man, said on the above mentioned occasion : "The master 
spirit at the dedication was the Rev. John Todd, D.D., of 
Pittsfield, who preached the sermon. He was a master in 
Israel, a man of great spiritual power. His discourse 
interested and edified all who heard it. He brought to 
us wise council and noble inspiration, and when in his

own impressive manner he performed the solemn act of

all the people said 'Amen'." 

Towards the close of the recent war, a Connecticut 
magazine prepared the following article for its own 
press, and it is quoted here as bringing this life-glimpse 
almost strictly down to date : 

OLD STATE HOUSE REPRODUCED IN SOUTHERN HILLS 

Brief Sketch of the Career of Former New Haven 
Resident Who Erected Among the Blue Ridge Moun- 
tains of Virginia A School House Modeled After the 
Structure that Stood so Long on the Green. 
To reproduce in a strange land the building that 
meant home in one's "Ain Countree" is nothing new. Im- 
migrants wearying for the sight of Loch Lomond or for 
a whif of smoke from a Kilkenny cot have done it before 
this ; under the hands of a man with the Heimweh on him 
even that uncompromising institution, the New England 
farm-house, has a way of taking on unaccustomed lines 
and something of an air of foreign graciousness. 

But to become so warmly attached to a public build- 
ing, to a structui'e that can have none of the intimate 
associations that make home unforgetable, as to reproduce 
it years afterwards, line for line, with all the loving at- 
tention to detail with which one would copy the home 
hearth-place, there is an O'Heniy twist of the unusual. 

The man who did this once lived in New Haven. He 
is Rev. Wm. E. M. Todd, whom many residents of this city 
will probably remember. The building he reproduced 
was the old State House that stood not many years ago on 
the Green. And the site he chose for it was a natural 
depression in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, "On 
the trail of the Lonesome Pine," where feuds and 
romances, faiiy-stones, (and at that time moonshine 
whiskey) and big apples flourished, as well as material 
for ballad makers, and in one instance, at least, nostalgic 
yearnings for the dignity and orderly grace of a New 
England town. 

During the middle eighties, the "People's Mission" 
34 



530 TODD FAMILY 

stood on Union Street, nearly opposite the grimy, old 
Union Station. Here were welcomed the human derelicts 
that then made the street an unsavory spot, and though 
it was before the day of the "social settlement," there was 
constructive work done there that would compare favora- 
bly with the record of the more pretentious institutions of 
today. 

One of the workers at the Mission was a boy named 
Todd — William Todd. He was an enthusiastic young 
chap, somewhat of a mystic, preached as they use to 
preach in the olden days, with a vehemence and deadly 
earnestness such as the world now regards as out of tune 
with the times. But he had one quality which the genius 
preacher does not always possess — imagination. 

These were the days when the old state house still 
loomed up in the heart of the city, and the boy, who often 
on Sunday afternoons spoke to a crowd of four or five hun- 
dred people at the southern poitico, was fasinated by the 
long line of steps, the tall fluted columns and the whole 
aspect of a Greek Temple of the Golden Age set down in 
the trim expanse of a New England green. And when not 
long after he left New Haven, he carried with him a 
mental image of the old State House that was to stay with 
him for many years. 

At that time, Mr. Todd was preparing for the minis- 
try. From New Haven, he went to Virginia, and con- 
tinued his studies for several years, spending his summer 
vacations on Menhaden fishing steamers going out from 
Boothbay Harbor, Boston, New London, New York, 
Philadelphia, Baltimore, Norfolk, Cape Charles and a 
score of other ports ranging the ocean from oflf the Maine 
coast to the West Indies. In the meantime, he became a 
full-fledged marine engineer and was seeing sei-vice on the 
Job T. Wilson, the first vessel of that type ever launched, 
tlie Pauline Wilbur, the Starry Banner, the Bradley, the 
Goodale, the Daisy, the Isaac N. Vesey and the J. W. Haw- 
kins. The last named was a great ship and was well 
manned, having a double crew. One morning these alert 
fellows, having a chance, caught before breakfast 500,000 
menhaden. It took all day to load them. Later, it may

be recalled, this vessel was purchased by the Cuban Junta 
and placed under the command of the Cuban Patriot, Gen. 
Calixto Garcia, in the service of Cuba Libra. She was 
unusually large and swift for a vessel of this class and 
easily converted into a filabustera or blockade runner. 

Mr. Todd's career has been a versatile one. His sea 
going ventures including also time used "before the 
mast," first as an ordinary seaman, then as an able sea- 
man, afterward as steward and from that up to second 
officer on the great black sloop "Rainbow" of the Rappa- 
hannock, the "Lila Dale" of the lower Chesapeake, the 
rakish, buoyant daring cai-away pungy "Alice," Captain 
Cole, whose home was on the Patuxant river; the sailing 
merchantman "L. F. Hall" of Baltimore and the bold ocean 
rover and pineapple freighter, the old Staten Island 
"William McGee." This vessel went to the old Columbus 
port of San Salvador. 

After leaving the fishing harvesters, he was chief of 
a ship of nine engines in U. S. construction sei-vice. 
About this time, completing his studies, he was ordained 
to the ministry in 1890, and since then has sei'ved in the 
churches throughout the country as evangelist, pastor and 
builder or supei-\'ising architect. Not long after his or- 
dination, he was appointed postmaster of an important 
court-house town and port of entry, and did much "dry" 
campaigning in Alabama, Tennessee and Virginia, each 
state ultimately winning for prohibition by large majori- 
ties. Later he was at work in Iowa and Montana when 
they each voted "dry" by splendid margins. 

It was during this period that he erected the building 
so well modeled after our State House. He had 
planned to build a school for the illiterate whites of that 
section, and when the question of design for the building 
came up, a happy inspiration struck him — the old State 
House on the gi-een. This was a new departure for the 
Virginian mountain district, a gaunt wooden shack, four- 
square to the winds, was the type of school building to 
which the people were accustomed, but Mr. Todd per- 
sisted in his purpose to do the highest best, and finally 
won the men of the mountains over to his views and en-

thusiasm arose so high and strong that they had the 
structure up in short order, after which new school- 
houses became quite the order of the day all over that part 
of the state. 

The corner stone of this noble building was laid with 
Masonic ceremonies amid great rejoicing. Several thou- 
sand people being in attendance, and music was furnished 
by excellent brass and string bands made up of young 
native mountaineers. This band later numbered 175 
players and attained a national reputation, being known 
far and near as a human pipe-organ. From time to time 
other buildings, seven in all, were erected and the rock, 
timber and lumber used in the construction of thena all 
was furnished from the Virginian quarries and forests of 
the surrounding country. A steam saw and planing 
mill was set up on the campus — a tract of 100 acres where 
it worked early and late for about two years. Also steam 
and water grist mills were soon established, stone-masons 
were recruited, journeymen carpenters secured and the 
work went steadily forward to a grand finish in a little 
more than 30 months. A sojourner in the district sends 
the following description of Central College, Literary In- 
stitute and School of Music, as this group of schools was 
then called. It was early chartered and incorporated. 

"Along the old Danville-Carroll Pike, not far from 
Carroll Court-house, where the Allen Clan, a few years 
ago shot up the court while in session, and near the head 
waters of the historic Dan river, is a natural bowl in the 
Blue Ridge Mountains, reaching from the famous Lover's 
Leap on the west, to the Bull Peak on the east. It is a 
mammoth depression, ten miles across the top and about a 
thousand feet deep, and through this runs the old pike. 
Its sides are covered with forests, small farms and or- 
chards, and cottages overflowing with children. Suddenly 
one comes upon the College with its band stand on the roof 
and usually "Old Glory" flying from the flagstaff above. It 
tells its own story, a strong people realized a need and 
a loyal son of Virginia and Connecticut lived and worked 
there with them. During the first five years he rode 
something like 14,000 miles on horseback in the interest 



EIGHTH GENERATION 533 

of this establishment. Of the results of his work with 
the institution, Dr. Richard S. Martin, member of the 
Board of Visitors, President of the State Medical Asso- 
ciation and member of the Virginia House of Delegates, 
said at one of the Commencements : "In the lives of his 
students and in the hearts of our people, he has erected 
to himself a monument more enduring than either gold or 
marble." 

The founder of this Central School and Armory — 
for it has its military academy — has often been invited 
into pulpits all along the east coast as well as throughout 
much of the interior, from the Pine Tree State in the far 
northeast to the most southern city of the nation, and mu- 
sicians under his instruction have been called for from 
Seattle, Wash., thru the middle West to Washington, D. C. 
and south to Macon, Ga. In Key West, Fla., he was presi- 
dent of the Ministerial Association, (40 churches). His 
church was a colony of more than 400 families. A fine 
pipe organ was installed and they had the most delightful 
choir in all the orange land. Two of his men were mem- 
bers of the Legislature, many were merchants and several 
owned fleets of sponge ships. While resident there, he 
was speaker at a great state convention. Memorial Day 
orator for the G. A. R. and for the Four Hundredth An- 
niversaiy of the birth of Wesley, before the only English 
Wesleyan Church in the United States, a body of some 500 
members, also located at Key West. 

His Alabama people made his work among them a 
constant delight. The Mayor of Piedmont, Judge E. D. 
McClellan, one of his Elders, always kept open house for 
him and his family. At Anniston he was clerk of the 
City Ministerial Association (40 churches) and Judge 
(Chancelor) W. W. Whiteside, statesman, churchman and 
jurist, a widely beloved man was clerk of his session. 
Here he officiated at times with seven of the leading pul- 
pits, gave a memorial to General Joseph Wheeler, was 
made a Royal Arch Mason and designed his ninth new 
church. Judge J. Marion Hare, of Fairview, Major E. S. 
Smith, at Argo, Esq. J. J. Freeman, of Mountainboro, 
Judge R. A. D. Dunlap and George Washington Whorton, 



534 TODD FAMILY 

at Gadsden were most valued friends who always worked 
with steady, sturdy faith and membership in the historic 
old church was multiplied by three. While here he was 
stated clerk of his Presbytery, elected Moderator and sent 
to the General Assembly. Gadsden was the first of the 
old iron towns in the heart of the "Old South", now a city 
of pretentious proportions and a county seat, on the fa- 
mous Coosa river; and was always most prompt to ring 
true to every call of its ancient chivalry for the protection 
and advancement of its people. The name of Gen'l Na- 
than Bedford Forrest, founder of the true Ku Klux Klan 
(there was a false one) the invisible empire, the invisible 
brotherhood of the fiery cross, was here held in reverential 
affection. Many Todds have lived here, some coming 
dii'ect from the old home across the sea. 

On Dr. Todd's retiring from this field where he was also 
chaplain of the city Fire Department, chaplain A. F. & A. 
M. and prelate for the Knights Templar, his church 
inviting the co-operation of these organizations, planned 
an elaborate farewell meeting which was attended by a full 
house. The Fire Department Band was present and dis- 
coursed appropriate selections. Piano solos and duets 
were rendered by members of the congregation and ad- 
dresses were given by Judge R. A. D. Dunlap, who spoke 
for the church. Judge James A. Bilbro, speaking on "Re- 
ligion and Fraternity" and the minister who talked for 
"Life's Idealisms and Realisms." Mrs. Todd gave a read- 
ing, the band played, the choir and congregation worship- 
ed with prayer and song and the whole audience united 
in tendering the pastor and his family a loving and af- 
fectionate farewell and in wishing them prosperity and 
success in all their future labors. The Rev. Todd was 
accepting a call to Omaha, Neb. 

To mention the towns and cities in which Mr. Todd 
has spoken would be to list practically all the communities 
of any considerable size in the country. In Massachusetts, 
he has addressed congregations in Springfield, Brockton, 
Edgartown, Taunton and Fall River; in Rhode Island, 
Providence, Bristol, Green, Lafayette and Woonsocket; 
in Connecticut nearly 100 places including, Danielson, 



EIGHTH GENERATION 535 

Tylerville, Taftville, Burrville, Plainville, Unionville, 
New Haven, Wallingford, Middle Haddam, Chester, Cen- 
terbrook, Danbuiy, Norwich, Cheshire, Mt. Carmel and 
Torrington; in New York, Albany, New Lebanon, New 
York City and Brooklyn; in Mainland, Harve-de Grace, 
Salisbury and Baltimore ; More than seventy-five places in 
Virginia, including Charlottesville, Danville, Martinsville, 
Clarksville, Excelsoir Springs, Lynchburg, Newport 
News and Richmond; North Carolina at Greensboro, 
Danbuiy and Salisbury ; Georgia at Atlanta, Macon and 
Savanah; in Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma and so on 
over the list of states. His most famous pulpit in the 
South was the old Circular Church of Charleston, a well 
endowed parish and a notable organization dating from 
1678. His strong pulpit fai-thest north was First Church, 
London, Canada. Some of his interior pulpits have been 
at Zanesville, Cleveland, Chicago, many places in Iowa, 
Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska, including Kansas City, 
Omaha and Lincoln ; Hot Springs, S. D. ; Butte, Mont. ; 
Lewiston, Idaho ; Aberdeen, Wash. ; Portland, Ore. where 
he had twelve war platforms, three of which were pulpits. 
At the beginning of this century. Dr. Todd was in 
charge of an important parish on the western border of 
Connecticut and while here the membership increased, 
the church and grounds about it were improved and the 
congregation celebrated its 175th anniversary. The affair 
was given wide publicity at the time, and guests were 
present from Danbury, Pennsylvania, New York, Hart- 
ford and Boston. Plain, austere and puritanical in ex- 
ternal simplicity, but cozy and cordial within, and in sum- 
mer almost hidden by the foliage of surrounding trees, 
this church stands as a symbol of the faith which the fore- 
fathers of the congregation have followed on this same 
site for two centuries. The great French General 
Rochambeau once camped his aiTny for weeks beside it. 
It bears the distinction of being nearer to the New York 
line than any other in the state and numbers among its 
stanch supporters, educators, members of the town board, 
business men and members of the Legislature. 

Not long since the minister's work was again in the 
west and while located in Iowa — his wife's native state 



536 TODD FAMILY 

— his silver wedding was observed with the people of his 
parish and was the occasion of much unalloyed pleasure. 
A band of 40 pieces furnished most delightful music and 
the family were the grateful recipients of fifty silver gifts 
and fifty silver dollars, $25 and 25 gifts to each celebrant. 
It was Dec. 25th, and the church was filled with loving 
friends whose minds were alight with living memories 
of a personal past, sacred with tenderness and anxious 
kindness in the ways, cares and labors of growing family 
experiences in the home, in business and in society. The 
program and ceremonies were purely informal, after 
which dainty refreshments were sei-ved by three prairie 
nymphs, the Misses Neva Stockdale, Ruth M. Todd and 
Anne Tiedens, gowned in pink and blue who made every- 
body happy with their delightful and quaint liberalities 
and witty pleasantries. Back of the band on the wall was 
stretched a beautifully illuminated picture of Bethlehem, 
the Angel and the shepards, the wise men and the 
star, a great lithograph in oil 9 feet high and 27 feet 
long and suitable for both Christmas Eve and Christmas 
night. The band seemed in unusual good spirits and 
added much to the festivities of the occasion. 

Among the many delightful and deeply appreciated 
gifts was a tall candle stick, suggesting the Bible figure 
of the true light in the church. This gift by the pastor of 
the Refonned Church, the Rev. Mr. G. Zindler and his 
daughter, touched very closely the earnest Christian 
motive of the pastor and Mrs. Todd. And of the many 
messages of the fraternal regard from many sections of 
the country the one given below, by the stated clerk of the 
Presbytery of Waterloo breathes the kindly spirit of all 
the others. 

My garden blossoms best at Christmas time, 
Untouched by wintry winds or clinging snow. 
Because my flowers are loving Memories 
That never die but grow, and grow, and grow. 
And if, perchance, within that garden fair. 
You'll walk with me and all its fragrance share, 
For-get-me-nots of Heaven's serenest blue. 
You'll find are blooming there, my friend, for you.

Dr. Todd is a member of the American Academy, 
American Geographical Society, Archaeological Institu- 
tion of America, with classical schools at Rome, Athens 
and Jerusalem ; American Historical Association, Nation- 
al Geographic Society, Educational Association of Vir- 
ginia, Scout Commissioner, the National Municipal 
League, the League to enforce Peace, and one of the foun- 
ders of the National Masonic Research Society. He has 
often spoken in the interests of Patriotism, Education and 
Religion in some thirty of the great cities and college cen- 
ters of the country, and is also connected with the most 
significant movements of modern times in the church, the 
schools and with the masters of Political Science. He has 
been a hard student and has enjoyed the society of many 
of the most responsible leaders of inventive and socio- 
logical progress. His large stake is: he never forgets a 
friend, much less an enemy, and his work every where 
has been constructive. 

Congratulations came also from His Honor The Mayor, 
and Mrs. William Dreyer, His Honor the Ex-Mayor, attor- 
ney, and Mrs. D. Voogd, the Rev. and Mrs. Wm. H. Rob-

Butte, Montana, the largest, richest and at that time, 
was the wickedest mining town in the world. Its status 
since then has been very greatly advanced. The state

in defense of the "Verity of the New Testament Story of 
the Trials of Jesus", given before the Montana Coro- 
mandry of Knights Templar, of which order this minister 
is a member, was published in the city press and in 
bound form for circulation.

garded as of unusual strength and by many has been 
warmly commended in both Oregon and Washington.

eluding the fraternities, commercial, military and other 
bodies. He did his war bit in a dozen different ways ; in 
the camps, at ship furnishings, army supplies, as engineer, 
band master, time keeper, paymaster, foreman, store- 
keeper, postmaster and chaplain. The recruiting officer 
came into his home soliciting his service on special lines. 
His family in the meantime each doing their utmost to 
help Uncle Sam win his most laudible designs against the 
secularized and fanatical scientists of the age who were 
unerringly sealing in their swagging, savagery, their own 
well deserved death warrant and ultimately that of their 
empire and their government. 

In the Appalachian mountains, from the Potomac to the 
Mississippi rivers dwell 3,000,000 people of the purest 
American blood. Five times their present numbers 
dux-ing the last 150 years have flooded from these giant 
hills into the throbbing life veins of the Nation and like 
a fierce artesian well have helped mightily to keep the 
great stream full and free. In the early sixties, when 
numbers were relatively much less, 80,000 enlisted in the 
Union service. It was given to such as these men to 
capture, single-handed, the largest bunch of the boldest 
Huns during the world-war, and our most notable public 
officials hasted to do them honor. Given the steady bene- 
fits of modern educational progress this remarkable 
people may enhance the mind, heart, life and initiative 
of our wonderful America, in the strongest application of 
its practical genius a hundred fold. The vast recesses 
of these mountains are mines of unrelenting spirit, com- 
mon culture of a flexible granite quality that can scarcely 
be found anywhere else in the world. It is up to institu- 
tions like the above to find and utilize this measureless 
value of America's psychological wealth.

guest of honor on this occasion — and this speaker was also 
with the First Church, London, Canada, a cathedral city, 
during the mobilization of troops for service in the Trans- 
vaal. He occupied, 1917-18, fifteen war pulpits, founded 
the college group mentioned above, sent fifty students to 
post graduate studies, prepared fifty more for scientific 
agriculture, graduated a hundred public school teachers 
and had more than a thousand boys in Uncle Sam's recent 
armies. Men of his Highland Battery attained renown. 
Two of his churches doubled in membership and three 
others trebled. He established ten pulpits, found fifteen 
men for the ministry and an entire city was organized into 
a single church. He is the practical pioneer of modern 
church unity, and in the co-operation of state and de- 
nominational college work. 

His conservatory of music furnished musicians for the 
civic division of the 1912 Presidential Inaugural and for 
other great national functions. He designed and con- 
structed twenty-five fine church properties, all of them 
excellent and some of them ample, impressive and digni- 
fied architecturally; beautifully harmonious within, and 
wholly and inclusively practical. Substantial and eff'ec- 
tive expressions of the best and most inviting themes in 
the active Christian thought of today, and many have 
united with the churches he has served. These prodigious 
labors, together with an unusual scholastic record — for 
he always carried class honors — have earned for him five 
degrees and fellowship in five learned societies. His com- 
mission as Captain hangs on his library wall and his ap- 
pointment as chaplain in the great assembly room at the 
court-house. He has been moderator and stated clerk of 
presbytery, member of the General Assembly and parti- 
cipated in many difficult war activities, being connected, 
part of the time, with seven camps. He also helped fur- 
nish and supply 100 of the U. S. Merchant Marine. 

His archaeological researches have promoted a keen ad- 
vance for an intelligent concern in the work of the 
American Classical Schools at Rome, Athens and Jeru- 
salem and he has active investments in the restoration of 
Palestine, Syria, Arabia, Armenia and the ancient domin-

ion of the Calaphs. His philosophy declares "An age is 
dying in the East and that a new world will rise there." 
His book answering "New Testament Critics" received 
strong commendation and was given a wide circulation. 
He had ten speaking points in the heart of the city of Port- 
land, Oregon, and his home was a rendezvous for both offi- 
cers and privates during the entire period of the war. He 
often led the war-time bands and his work was in all of 
the northwest states. He was also called east on a num- 
ber of special missions in the interest of both the church 
and the government. 

Dr. Todd's work on the northwest coast has lately again 
been cordially referred to personally and in the public 
press, for its patriotic and educational value, for besides 
his church and camp work he had three war bands, and 
his university classes were a fine enrollment. A high 
salaried position was offered him and a chair in a great 
school, but his whole interest is absorbed in the church. 
To this spiritual enterprise he is wholly devoted and to 
this purpose his life is dedicated. 

His pulpit in Greenfield, Indiana, is in a great building 
of twenty-five rooms fully equipped right down to the 
minute, and the character of his sermons has recently 
called again into his audiences the Vetei'ans of the Grand 
Army, the Woman's Relief Corp, the American Legion 
and the Knights Templar. These last named worshipped 
with him on Easter Sunday when his sei-mon addressed 
to them was entitled: "Why the World Failed and 
Christianity Won in both the First and in the Twentieth 
Centuries." This Easter sermon was given a generous 
circulation in the daily and weekly press. The Armistice 
Day will never be forgotten — 11th hour, 11th day, 11th 
month, 1918. He has recently added to his collection 
two great pictures : The Most Dramatic Moment in Four 
Centuries — General Allenby entering Jerusalem unarmed 
without firing a shot — ending forever misrule in the Holy 
City, Dec. 11, 1917. And the Reading of the Proclama- 
tion at David's Tower in four languages Christmas Day 
two years ago when General Allenby made to Christen- 
dom a present of recovered Jerusalem. These tremen- 



EIGHTH GENERATION 541 

dous incidents made possible by the faith, sacrifice and 
work of the period, have started the music of the world 
to vibrating in a new way. And so we move ahead again 
toward the better excellence promised in God's book, into 
the morning ever dawning in the human conciousness. 

Mrs. Todd has always been interested in school and in 
woman's work, teaching seven years before marriage and 
later in Alabama and Virginia, where she was principal 
of Central Academy and matron of the young ladies' dor- 
mitoiy. She is active with the W. C. T. U., the W. R. 
C, with the Woman's Federations and the Order of the 
Eastern Star. But her chief interest has been Missions. 
Always devoted to the church she has had opportunity to 
address the women of Massachusetts, Connecticut, 
Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, Virginia, Mon- 
tana, where in the city of Butte she was auditor of the 
Federated Woman's Clubs, and in Oregon where under 
the new suffrage law she was made a judge of election in 
the city of Portland. Being so steadily busy, her chief 
relaxation has been a good garden — both flower and veg- 
etable — and an occasional good banquet. For twenty-five 
years this home has rarely ever been without a guest and 
fnuch of the time as many as from five to fifty people. 
For much of this period the family scarcely ever sat down 
to a meal by themselves. And the banquets so much en- 
joyed have sei-ved on many important civic, educational, 
church and community occasions from a hundred to 
twenty-five hundred people and the mendicant never gets 
by her door without his hand-out. Both the garden and 
the banquet, together with her school, church and home 
duties have been and are to her a source of inexhaustable 
comfort and pleasure. Always fond of young people, 
young company and good, hearty, lively merriment, she 
has kept herself young, and now at fifty-three seems little 
above forty. So the gift of immortality early shows 
itself in the lives of those to try to exemplify the Todd 
motto — "To live well, is to have lived enough" — that is, 
to try to do your best.

graduate and was athletic editor her senior year, 
is a member of the largest athletic clubs in Amer- 
ica, has recently been elected as teacher of phy- 
sical culture and English in two splendid High 
schools. 

Ruth began life in a beautiful little villa 
by the banks of the Blue River at Blue Springs, 
Neb. and her arrival was heralded by the gift of 
a home, and half a car-load of supplies of all kinds 
of provisions that came over the Burlington Rail- 
road — a bountiful and most generous considera- 
tion from her father's people throughout the state 
with whom he built three churches and for whom 
he was superintendent, editor and pastor-at-large. 

Owing to pastor Todd's responding to so many 
calls, Ruth's schooling was advanced by the abil- 
ities of many teachers. Her High School studies, 
however, were taken in Gadsden, Alabama and 
Omaha, Nebraska, and her A. B. degree work 
was done at Southern Presbyterian College in 
North Carolina, and with Richmond's Woman's 
College, Richmond, Virginia; receiving therefor 
a five-year teacher's certificate from the state 
Board of Education. This certificate was re- 
newed in 1920 for a six year period and she re- 
ceived in that same year a High School Life 
License with the State Board of Indiana. Ruth 
studied music all her school-life, having both pri- 
vate and public tutors, and has become proficient 
in piano, pipe-organ and band work. She also 
holds Iowa and Oregon State Teachers certificates, 
has had common and High School work in the 
four states and in the last named she was one of 
the most efficient and popular teachers residing 
at Portland, and was chosen to a High School po- 
sition paying $150 per month. She has always 
been an amiable and fun loving girl, fond of ath- 
letics, horse-back riding, autoing and the classics 
in drill and military movement, and with her 
native and acquired abilities in modern educa- 
tional activities she has become an allround and 
accomplished school woman.

Ruth has personally drilled and successfully- 
presented "monie a troup o' lassies to gie the 
'Highland Flinge' before classical and critical 
audiences in the South, Middle-west and on the 
West coast, and all the way across it struck a pop- 
ular chord everywhere. The "auld Scotch foke" 
say she even excells them in the "land o' the 
heather". Her lassies always make a hit and 
give their audiences more than anticipated 
pleasure. She has also presented many other 
forms of school and evening entertainment — and 
even now, Christmas time 1920, she is at work 
with 140 young people planning for the opening 
night for a new Gym and Atheneum soon to be 
dedicated in the city where she lives and is on the 
school Faculty. Her abilities on these lines are 
always in demand. She thoroughly appreciates 
the high moral value of physical culture and 
supervised athletics, and school patrons trust her 
fully. She has had some of the best audiences in 
America. 

Ruth has state authorized Diplomas from the 
departments of Home Economics, Domestic 
Science and Physical Culture in The Virginia 
School of Pedagogy and has taught these branches 
with gratifying success. She has been Assis- 
tant Principal and Principal; and standardized 
one of her western schools. And as a High School 
or College teacher of English and History, she is 
unexcelled. 

Socially she owns a wide circle of loyal friends 
in fifteen of the states, is a member of the Multno- 
mah Club — which has the largest athletic mem- 
bership of any in America and seems to live to 
serve and to be a joy to those about her. She 
was on the editorial staff at both her colleges, is 
active in church work and has often been a re- 
sourceful assistant in her father's active parish 
plans. She is beloved by all her students, and yet 
is one of the most careful of disciplinarians — this 
latter is not infrequently said to be a prominent

Todd characteristic. Ruth's loftiest asset is: 
"that it pays to be courteous." 
2444. John William Stover, b. Aug. 8, 1901, he also has 
lived in a dozen of the states, but received his ear- 
lier school training in Alabama, Nebraska and 
Virginia. He had a diploma from the Normal 
Grade or School of Pedagogy, at Central Academy 
and from the High School of Aplington, Iowa two 
months before he was fifteen years of age. He 
was then employed for two years part of the time 
in Iowa at garage and band work, then later with 
the office force of a great commercial and banking 
company at Butte, Montana, where sometimes 
with a reliable revolver in his pocket he would be 
sent through a crowded street, more or less alive 
with alert and powerful crooks to get a suit case 
full of money, frequently gold, but it might be 
either silver or currency. He did not always go 
alone, neither always on foot. But in a throng- 
ing and wicked city as Butte then was, where 
holdups were of daily occurence — two outlaws 
sometimes alone robbing as many as fifty 
people — the trip was always fraught with more or 
less thrill and danger. This city is 6000 feet up 
in the air (altitude) in Winter mighty frosty — 
forty below zero — and in Summer mighty hot. 
Life here is rich and tense and the people are 
often either mighty good or mighty bad. He was 
next engaged as private secretary in the main 
office with a similar concern in Portland, Oregon, 
where a part of his duties was collecting heavy 
accounts. It is said that his fullest days work 
on that line was collecting from several local 
firms — some of whom did not want to pay with- 
out a few weeks dickering and the using of every 
known form of banking subterfuge — $250,000. 
But he got it and felt that he had won for his 
office. And so the thrall and enthusiasm for 
honest big business began to awaken and expand 
in his own will and purpose. His next venture

was as chief messenger with the U. S. Forrestry 
service, but feeling the need for larger earnings 
pressing him, he became one of Uncle Sam's steel 
ship outfitters at $125 a month, and entered 
Commercial High School for night study, major- 
ing in stenography and typewriting. For war 
work, for he was not yet seventeen altho large for 
his age, he enlisted in "The Multnomah Guard," 
Portland's city war regiment of 1800 business 
and professional men. These men were regularly 
and thoroughly drilled, fully equipped and worked 
much of the time night and day at R. R. bridges, 
ship j^ards and elsewhere when needed. He was 
a leading musician in the regimental band of 120 
pieces, before this he had been chief musician in 
Central Academy Militaiy band. At other times 
he has played with various other bands through- 
out the country from Macon, Ga., to Seattle, Wash. 
He was Regimental Bugler, with the rank of Ser-

training instructor in S. A. T. C, and untiring 
devotion to every military duty he was given the 
full insignia of ex-service man, and is member of 
the Government vocational fraternity Chapter at 
his University. He was a Freshman at Reed Col- 
lege, Sophomore at University of Washington 
where he plays in the band and orchestra and is 
associate coxswain with the racing crews, which 
won the regatta this year, 1920, from the crews of 
the University of California. He is taking the new 
and strong advanced course in "Business Ad- 
ministration." He is fond of all school sports, 
hugely enjoys tennis, loves to sing with guitar 
and ukulele, a fine musician and can use nine 
instruments. He is much interested in the future 
of our country through the development and prog- 
ress of the west coast, where he is a Junior in the 
University of Washington at Seattle. He has 
been active in the church ever since the age of six 
years. 35

Clifford Kirtland Todd«, (Orrin K.% William% 
Simeon', JoelS Ithamar^ MichaeP, Christopher^ married 
at Wallingford, Conn., Aug. 25, 1897, Elizabeth, daughter 
of Henry Lobb, the Rev. E. G. Richardson, pastor of the 
Methodist Church officiating. 

Clifford K. Todd had in his nature two qualities not 
possessed in so large a degree by any others of these boys. 
He was liberal in his opinion, but conservative in his ex- 
pression of them and as a consequence his quiet influ- 
ence has steadily grown. He is progressive in his life — 
was among the first to own an automobile — and up-to-date 
in his engagements. He has been at the head of a depart- 
ment with the world famous R. Wallace Sons Mfg. Com- 
pany for 30 years. This firm manufacture in all metals 
from tin to gold, and at present Mr. Todd has the great 
department of Nickel Silver flat ware. He has a pleasant, 
well located home and his personal fad is a collection of 
the original sources of the great religious foundations, 
as the Christian Bible, the Mohamedan Koran, the Pitti- 
kas of the Buddists, the Rig Vedas of the Brahmins, etc. 

He is keenly alive with broad and generous senti- 
ments, keeps posted on both local and world events and is 
a most thorough and ardent patriot. His high regard for 
New England and his home loving proclivities have kept 
him always near to his native heath, but this has been a 
gain to him in many respects, for the years of agreeable 
association with a continuously increasing circle of local 
acquaintance and friendship has doubtless realized for 
him the strong value of a steadily deepening affection, 
and a quiet growth of this strength into his own esteem 
for others, finds in this mutual confidence all that makes 
of living its true riches and intrinsic worth. He is one of 
the pillars of his age socially and industrially, and always 
has mixed with a great mass of men who have thought 
but little about it, but who trust him absolutely ; and in his 
line of active planning his judgement is seldom ques- 
tioned. With his family his religous connection is with 
the M. E. Church.

Whitney Alfred Todd^ (Orrin K.', William", Simeon ■, 
Joel\ Ithamar', Michael-, Christopher^ born 1874, mar- 
ried Jan. 6, 1902, Zadelle Lucretia, daughter of Charles 
Billings Smith, at South Meriden, Conn. 

He had a fair education but went to work early. He 
was a powerfully built fellow, and not fully comprehending 
the throbbing impulse of his varied ambitions was some- 
what unusual in his activities to satisfy them. 

At the age of eighteen he enlisted in K Company, 2nd 
Regiment C. N. G. and served 8 years. Enlisted in L 
Company, 1st Connecticut U. S. Volunteers in 1898 and 
served during the Spanish-American War. Enlisted in 
the 43rd U. S. Volunteers in 1899 and served two years in 
the Philippine Islands. Was honorably discharged from 
this service at San Francisco in July 1901. Enlisted in the 
123rd Coast Artillery, U. S. Anny in 1904. TransfeiTed 
to 54th Company (Tori^edo School of Submarine Defense) 
for one year course, and was then transferred to the 95th 
Torpedo Company as instructor in submarine torpedo 
work. It will be noted that Whit., as he was familiarly 
called, took several leaps across parts of the world in the 
service of the Government. All this work was full 
fraught with daring and danger, but that thought seemed 
to seldom come to him. He strongly desired to work out 
his own destiny on these lines and his always fine demon- 
strations covered a broad basis of time, space and action, 
and his work was commended. On his final discharge he 
located at Yalesville, Conn. — the populous suburb of the 
busy and somewhat aristocratic manufacturing and resi- 
dence Borough of Wallingford. 

Whitney Alfred, always retained his unusual physical 
vigor and was also the fortunate possessor of marvelous 



548 TODD FAMILY 

powers of endurance which enabled him to outserve ahnost 
any other man in many of the difficult anny and war tasks 
assigned to him. His many sided activities seem to have 
given satisfaction for he was promoted to the rank of in- 
structor both while in the Philippines and in the Subma- 
rine School at home. These patriotic jobs were full of 
intense interest to him and he extolls them as well worthy 
his time and strength. All these experiences he regards 
as not without a large reflex value to himself, and as also 
a veritable and fairly complete asset in many ways for his 
plans for the rest of his life. 

Vocationally, he is connected with R. Wallace Son's 
cutlery department being responsible for quality of pro- 
duct and in charge of machines, tools and equipment, a 
position requiring experience of a peculiar kind, patience 
of very positive sort, alertness and speed of vision and 
action and special mental and mechanical abilities that are 
in constant demand. The work is important and the in- 
come commensurate. His careful attention to detail and 
ready accountability give satisfaction here, and his warm 
interest in home and community matters make him a jolly 
and sought for companion for any part of an unusual hour 
or two that needs a little spice injected into it. But he 
takes a deep and abiding interest in the welfare of his 
family and not much of his leisure finds him outside the 
threshold of his home except when they are with him. 
The family are active with the M. E. Church at Yalesville.

eon% Joels Ithamar', MichaeP, Christopher^) manned 
Charles Elmer, son of John Treloar, who is an indepen- 
dent manufacturer of hardware at Yalesville, where they 
reside. 

Mrs. Treloar spent all her years until 18 at school and 



EIGHTH GENERATION 549 

had the special advantage of the State Normal at New 
Haven. She then spent a couple years in the home of her 
brother, the Rev. Wm. E. M. Todd, a former well known 
minister of New England, in Rhode Island and at Fall 
River, Mass. While at the latter place a large number of 
young people united with the church and among them she 
received the rite of Baptism and was admitted into the 
communion of Broadway — now Pilgrim — Congregational 
church of which her brother was then the installed pastor. 

Spending some three more years with her mother, she 
was then married at the home, her brother, then in the 
west, returning expressly to officiate at the wedding. 
Many people in all the walks of life, from Watertown, 
North Haven, Meriden and Wallingford were in attend- 
ance. 

Fannie, as she is called by her intimates, was always 
of a most amiable nature, winning the esteem and affec- 
tion of a wide circle of those about her age in the three 
towns in which she had lived, Wallingford, Bristol, R. I. 
and Fall River, Mass., where she was a prime favorite 
with a lively group of literary and musical folk always 
attending her brother's church in that city. At home she 
was known as earnest, humble and accomplished in all 
that makes home life atti-active. Thus she has been able 
to create an ideal resting place for her family. 

Children : 
I. Donald Nelson Todd ; he made a fine record during 
the late world war in the manufacture of munitions 
at Bridgeport, Conn., where he had charge of a 
large shift of workers. His administration of this 
responsibility was well spoken of.

Allison DeWitt Todd% (Orrin K.% William", Simeon', 
Joel*, Ithamar", Michael-, Christopher^ born June 1879, 
in Wallingford, Conn., married in New Haven, Ct., June 



650 TODD FAMILY 

30, 1913, Dorendo Helen, daughter of Charles Henry 
Beckett, of Middlefield, Conn. 

Allison DeWitt Todd was born about three months 
after the sudden death of his father. He has lived prac- 
tically all his life in Wallingford, Ct., except a brief period 
in the cities of Meriden and New Haven, Ct. His educa- 
tion included High School and much time spent in the 
study of music, mostly voice, although improving himself 
somewhat in the use of the pianoforte. He had fine op- 
portunities for the study and drill in vocal culture, and as 
a boy sang for several years in the vested choir of St. 
Paul's Protestant Episcopal Church in Wallingford. 
This choir had an enviable reputation in general church 
circles and served a most beneficient purpose in the parish 
activities. 

After mature study under talented experts. Max 
Trueman, of New York City, and Prof. Enrico Batelli, of 
New Haven, Ct., he sang for contract periods in the Con- 
gregational Church, of Wallingford; Center Congrega- 
tional, of Meriden; Main St. Baptist, and St. Paul's 
Universalist, of that same city; First Baptist, of New 
Britain, and in the Central Presbyterian of Gadsden, 
Alabama, of which last named he also became a member, 
his older brother, the Rev. Wm. E. M. Todd, being pastor 
of that historic old body of worshipers, was humbly 
honored in officiating at his baptism and reception, the 
older, administrating for the youngest in this consecrated 
relation of such immortal significance. (In the Winter of 
1899-00 this minister was called upon to administer the 
same sacred rite for the oldest friend of his boyhood, Mrs. 
Calvin Benham, of Mt. Carmel, Conn., then in her 88th 
year. In her girlhood Mrs. Benham had been a beautiful 
singer and for many years had given her sweet voice to 
the service of the choir of Cheshire Congregational 
Church). Allison DeWitt's splendid tenor has been 
heard in many churches and on many occasions since, and 
he still contributes, as he finds the time, to the frequent 
and urgent calls made upon him. 

Much of his working days he has been connected with 
R. Wallace Son's, manufacturers of silverware, the largest 



EIGHTH GENERATION 551 

tableware concern in the world. An immense percentage 
of the knives, forks and spoons used by our soldiers dur- 
ing the world-war were made by this well known and 
pioneer firm in many of these lines of goods, the practical 
demand for which steadily increases. Allison DeWitt is 
the only immediate descendant of Orrin Kirtland, who has 
been pi-esented with a gold watch on the attainment of his 
majority, which irregularity was most cordially agreed to 
as without question in commemoration of the unusual cir- 
cumstances attending his birth. In the Autumn of 1920 
he became a Mason, Member of Compass Lodge No. 9 of 
his native town. 

Mrs. Allison D. Todd was a school teacher, before her 
marriage, having taught one year in East Granby, Conn., 
and ten years in Yalesville, Ct., where their home is 
located. They are each active members of the Methodist 
Episcopal Church and are earnestly trying to make every 
effort count for the right as they use up the unfolding 
years. They are popular among a host of the younger 
families and their presence always brings an added joy 
into the social and community gatherings of their friends 
and neighbors.

Libanus McLoud Todd*", (Asahel^ Asahel', Jehiel°,

Libanus M. Todd is the President of The Todd Pro- 
tectograph Company, of Rochester, N. Y., and inventor of 
the famous machines which bear his name. Of the 
achievements and the development of the company which 
was organized by he and his brother, George W. Todd, he 
writes the following on their twentieth anniversary. 

Last week Charlie Tiefel and I took the car and drove 
to the old house on Gregory Street, where, twenty years 
ago, we built the first Protectograph. You may imagine 
that you have seen us right back where we started twenty 
years ago. Our hair is grayer and things have changed 
considerably during that time. 



Ninth generation 505 

I could not help but think over the many interesting 
things that have occurred in this business since that 
sunny June day, twenty years ago, when we sat under 
the trees and worked out the problems that came to 
us on this first machine. Walter Todd, a lad of thii'teen, 
was at that time building a boat, and having the usual 
good time that comes to boys of his age, and my own 
family had not yet begun to arrive. Little did we think in 
those days that in this brief period of time such an or- 
ganization would be built up to carry the name "Protecto- 
graph" into all parts of the civilized world. 

I can well remember the first year, during which 
time our output and sales totaled one hundred machines. 
During that and the period following there were many 
nights when I went to the expi'ess office with our day's 
output, three Protectographs in each hand, and shipped 
them out to our agents or customers. 

The next Fall when George W. Todd went to the 
Banker's Convention at Richmond, and returned with 
orders for some twenty odd machines from various banks, 
we felt that we had a real incentive for working out im- 
provements, and producing a larger number of machines. 
During the first year, we had worked out some ideas for 
improvements, but during the entire twenty years, the 
design and size of the machine has remained exactly as 
in the first ones manufactured. The first hundred 
machines were made for us under contract by another 
concern in Rochester, and we continued having our 
machines made by other parties for a considerable period. 

When, after nearly four years of work and study, 
we produced nearly ten thousand machines, our agent, Mr. 
William Russell, located in New York City, who was our 
largest distributor at that time, came to visit us and told 
us that while he felt we would undoubtedly sell more 
machines, we had, he believed, reached the peak. This, 
as I recall, was the first time in Protectograph history 
that a territoiy was reported "sold out". At that time 
less than ten thousand machines had been made and sold. 

Today, when our sales have climbed up to more than 
three-quarters of a million of the various devices which 



596 TODD FAMILY 

we manufacture, I feel that this check protecting 
business is still in its infancy. Mr. Russell lived 
to see his statement disproven, and to realize what a 
wonderful possibility there was in connection with the 
business. 

In 1905 we moved into our own factory on West Main 
Street, and there we manufactured Protectograph num- 
ber twenty-five thousand — the first in our own plant. 
The business continued to grow until in 1909, we com- 
pleted the Protectograph plant at 1155 University Ave- 
nue. As the business developed and our advance adver- 
tising began to educate the public to the merits of the 
Protectograph, the capacity of this plant was gradually 
overtaxed. Charlie and I had, of course, long since 
ceased to direct the manufacture and shipment of each in- 
dividual machine, having placed those matters in the 
hands of people well trained to handle them, while we 
were devoting ourselves to improvements in the line. 

With the advent of the Protectograph Check Writer 
in the fall of 1913, even our model factory, designed to 
take care of the Protectograph business indefinitely, was 
found to be inadequate, so the presnt plant was purchased, 
and we moved into it over night, at the same time keeping 
up production on the Protectograph Check Writers, so 
that the insistent demands of our customers might be met. 
Then in another year came the crowning glory of the Pro- 
tectograph System — Protod, and the Indemnity Bond. 

Now our twentieth year has begun, there is peace and 
prosperity in the world, the Protod baby has developed 
into a lusty youngster, and a majority of the Banks and 
business houses of this country are using the Protecto- 
graph System. 

This, however, is not the end. It is the beginning. 
As I look back over the twenty years, I realize that I 
little dreamed that our business would require a plant like 
the present one, with neai'ly one thousand people earning 
their livelihood in the factory and on the sales force, as a 
result of the development of the Protectograph. 

Mr. Charles G. Tiefel, who is one of the directors of 
the Todd Protectograph Company, tells something as to 
the actual beginnings of the Protectograph. He says. 



NINTH GENERATION 597 

"One day in June 1899, Mr. Libanus M. Todd asked me to 
meet him to help him with some drawings of a check pro- 
tecting machine. Well do I remember that day of twenty 
years ago. We went out under the apple tree, and fixed 
up a table to make our drawings on. While thus at work, 
Mr. Todd reached over and took a big round inkwell that 
we had brought out to hold the papers down, as a paper 
weight, and laid it in the middle of a piece of drawing 
paper, then took his pencil and drew a circle around that 
old inkwell to show the shape of the dial of the new 
machine." 

That, according to Mr. Tiefel, was the actual begin- 
ning of a business which has grown to be the largest in 
the check protection industry, a business which from the 
most humble of beginnings has attained a proud and hon- 
orable place among the ofiice appliance manufacturers of 
the United States, a business which, during the twentieth 
year of its existence will probably mount to nearly three 
millions of dollars. 

For two weeks Mr. Todd and Mr. Tiefel worked out 
there under the tree, making the drawings ; then with the 
design completed, and reduced to paper, Charles moved 
inside to the woodshed workshop in which he continued 
the work of the first protectograph, by actually building 
the machine under the direction of the inventor, Mr. 
Libanus M. Todd, himself. 

The first model protectograph was fashioned from 
wood and metal patterns and the machine itself was nickel 
plated all over and had a wooden base. Later on it was 
decided that the machine should have a "treatment" of 
black enamel, and the nickel finish was then abandoned, 
except for the trimmings. The first machines were not 
furnished with an ink supply roll and it was necessary to 
"pry" the bottom off and "paint" the ink on the roll when 
the original ink supply became exausted from continued 
use. "In those days we didn't think much about reinking 
the machine because we really thought the ink would last 
as long as the machine themselves," said Mr. Tiefel. 

Mr. T. J. Gildea, of Wisconsin, says as to the achieve- 
ments of George W., and Libanus M. Todd, "I can't but 



598 TODD FAMILY 

wonder at the growth, magnitude, and development of an 
enterprise that promised so little twenty short years ago. 
It seems almost miraculous, and yet there isn't a thing 
about it that has the suspicion of the supernatural. The 
credit for the success of the Todd industry must be given 
to the genius who conceived the idea of the protectograph, 
and with it revolutioned the principle of check protection 
the world over. I have reference to Mr. George W. Todd. 

That credit being properly placed, I am not unmind- 
ful of the fact that there is another genius who is entitled 
to an equal credit with his enterprising brother. I have 
reference this time to Libanus M. Todd, who not only de- 
veloped the protectograph, but gave us the world's great- 
est and best Check Writer, an instrument having many 
imitators, but no rival, no peer." 

George W. Todd and Libanus M. Todd are typically 
self-made and self-reliant men, architects of their own 
business plan and fortune, and eminently successful, due 
to a progressive spirit, and strict attention to business 
that has characterized them, and a reputation for honesty 
well and fairly won. 

George W. and Libanus M. Todd began their business 
career when young. Inexperienced, without assistance, 
with little or no encouragement, under disheartening con- 
ditions, with many hours of anxious study and with per- 
severance unusual and a determination to succeed, can 
now after twenty years share satisfied fruition ; and well 
they deserve it. They are looking forward to the future 
with optimism believing that the biggest success is still 
ahead of the protectograph, and as evidence of this con- 
fidence, they are celebrating the twentieth anniversary by 
enlarging several of the factory depai'tments, ordering 
more new equipment than the first shop contained from 
cellar to loft.

April 19, 1854, married in 1876, Julia E. daughter of 
James G. and Sarah J. Hovey, who died Sept. 18, 1916. 

Mr. Todd was born in Michigan, in 1854, and when 
only two months old his parents arrived in Buchanan 
County, Iowa. He resided with his parents on the farm, 
attending the common schools winters until he was 
twenty-one years old when he attended the Iowa State 
University and in 1876 graduated from the law depart- 
ment of that institution. After graduation and admis- 
sion to the bar in 1876, he married Julia E. Hovey. In 
1878 he and his wife moved to Kansas and while there 
he was city attorney of Rosedale for four years. Soon 
after reaching Kansas, he engaged in the practice of his 
profession in Stockton, but did not continue active in that 
field, turning his attention to the real-estate business, in 
which he contiimed for four years. He then moved to 
Hiawatha, Kansas, where he practiced law and was en- 
gaged in the real-estate business for six years. He next 
moved to Kansas City, Kansas, where he followed his 
profession for five years, and in 1896 he returned to Iowa, 
engaging in the practice of the law in Independence, 
where he later became city attomiey which office he held 
for four years and then he was elected Mayor which office 
he held for two years and since that time for the last 
four years, he was city attorney again. 

In his early life he was a Republican but for the last 
few years he has gone over to the Democratic party. 
However, he believes that the party should not be con- 
sidei-ed in the consideration of questions concerning which 
the interest of the people demand action, or in other 
words, he believes that party should not at all times be 
the paramount issue. 

He has held the office of president of the Buchanan 
County Fair Association.

TODD FAMILY 



1122 



Dr. Elbert S. Todd, was the seventh son of Mr. and 
Mrs. G. H. Todd, who were sturdy Methodists of an early 
day, and pioneers in the new state of Michigan. He was 
born on a farm near Adrian, and early showed fondness 
for school and books. 

By the time he had finished the district school, his 
father had decided that he could never make a farmer of 
this boy, so moved into the growing city of Adrian, in 
order to give his promising son better educational ad- 
vantages. There he graduated with honor from the 
Adrian College — Rev. Asa Mahan, president. 

During his college days, when about sixteen years of 
age, he gave his heart to God, and united with the Metho- 
dist church, and was soon made leader of "The Young 
People's Meeting" — before the day of Epworth Leagues. 

He was a successful leader, and held the position 
until, having decided to prepare himself for the ministry, 
he went to the Garrett Biblical Institute at Evanston, 111. 
After his graduation, he went to the Union Theological 
Seminaiy of New York City and finished his studies there. 
While in New York he became interested in China, as a 
mission field, and decided to take his young bride and go 
as a missionary to that far away land. September 21, 
1867, he left his home and native land, and on arriving in 
China was stationed at Kiu Kiang, where he remained 
until, owing to the condition of his wife's health, the doc- 
tors ordered him to take her and the young son — born in 
China — back to the home land. 

They remained in California, and he joined the Cali- 
fornia Conference, being sent first to the Bush St. (Now 
California St.) Church, San Francisco, then to First 
Church, San Jose, next to Napa, then back to Grace M. E., 
San Francisco, and to First Church, Oakland. From 
there he transfered to Sixty-first St. Church, New York 
City, and then to Grace M. E., Church, Baltimore, for five 
years; Hamline Church, Washington, D. C, five years; 
Strawbridge Church, Baltimore, five years, and Frederick 
City, Maryland. 

He has written some books, and has taken two Euro- 



ADDITIONAL DATA 661 

pean trips, and now has retired from the active ministry, 
and is living at Hollywood, Md., though still a member of 
the Baltimore Conference. 

At their pleasant little bungalow home in Hollywood, 
they now have a religious service every Sabbath 
evening, for the neighborhood. Some who are not in the 
habit of attending church, and those of different denom- 
inations all meet together and enjoy a little informal 
evening of worship. So he is still doing the Master's 
work. 

Chan Kiu Sing, the pastor of our Chinese M. E. Mis- 
sion, still tells of the first Christian sermon he ever heard, 
which was preached by Dr. Todd, in the San Jose M. E. 
church.

The death of Samuel S. Todd occurred at his home 
in Toddsville, (N. Y.,) on Tuesday afternoon, May 10, 
1921, in the 97th year of his ago. Lacking but three 
years and a half of one hundred, Mr. Todd was probably 
the oldest resident of Otsego County. Furthermore, he 
was born in the neighborhood where he died and had 
always lived. Staunch in his Americanism and resemb- 
ling somewhat in personal appearance the character of 
"Uncle Sam", he was known and referred to by that af- 
fectionate title by his neighbors and many friends. Pos- 
sessing a retentive memory and being naturally of a 
genial and companionable disposition, it was a pleasure at 
all times to converse with him in regard to the early days 
of Toddsville and of this locality. He formed a con- 
necting link back to the days of the pioneers, through his 
father and grandfather. 

The writer called upon "Uncle Sam" about three 
weeks before his death. Bent with the infirmities of age, 
the old man said he was expecting the summons at any 
moment and was ready for it. On previous visits, Mr. 
Todd had expressed the determination to live to be a

hundred, but this time, having passed through a very try- 
ing winter, he did not wish, he said, to go through another 
one. '>' ,"S 

He had resided in his late home thirty-one years. 
Since the death of his wife in 1899, his daughter, Miss 
Florence, has kept the home and cared for her father. 

Mr. Todd was christened in the Presbyterian church 
in infancy and has always been a member of that church. 
A staunch Democrat he was for many years a Justice of 
the Peace in the town of Hartwick. Engaged for many 
years with the late Rufus Steere as salesman of cotton 
goods he was for a long time in the height of the industry, 
a familiar figure in the surrounding countries, making 
long trips with team and wagon, exchanging cotton cloth 
for the produce and merchandise of established cus- 
tomers. Since the close of the industry locally he has 
retired from active business, caring for his garden up 
until last fall.

Of his six children, five were living at the time of his 
death, namely, Mrs. Martha Gaylord and Fred, of 
Oneonta, Glenn, of Little Falls, and Mrs. James E. Almy 
and Miss Florence, of Toddsville.

In 1804, Jehiel Todd and his family consisting of his 
wife and sons, Lemuel, (then married) Ira, Caleb, Asahel, 
Zerah, and Bethel and daughters, Sally Todd, (Carr) and 
Polly Todd, (Crandall) came from Wallingford, Conn., 
the home of this Todd family for three generations. 

Jehiel Todd and his son, Lemuel, purchased the 
"Tubbs patent" from Judge Cooper of Cooperstown, N. 
Y., consisting of a tract of 300 acres of land on both sides 
of Oak Creek at the present site of Toddsville, (N. Y.) in- 
cluding the water power. The first house was erected by 
Mr. Tubbs in 1795 and is now, 1921, owned by Mrs. Mary 
Clapsaddle. The Todd families occupied this house until 
1805, when Jehiel Todd erected and occupied the house 
now owned and occupied by Frank Peck. Lemuel Todd

and his son Samuel S. Todd owning and occupying the 
"Tubbs house" until its purchase by the late Dr. Clapsad- 
dle several years ago. 

The first mill was a grist mill built by Mr. Tubbs 
and improved by the Todds, who soon after they arrived 
also built on the Hartwick side, a woolen mill, and on the 
Otsego side, a saw mill and paper mill near the south end 
of the present paper mill. This paper mill was three 
times burned and rebuilt and operated by the Todd family 
until 1855. The first store was kept by Lemuel Todd in a 
building between the houses now, 1921, owned by Mrs. 
Clapsaddle and Michael Cleary. Zerah Todd ran a store, 
bookbinding and printing plant in connection with the 
woolen mill in the house now known as the "Old Dr. Almy 
House". The first and only hotel was built in about 1827 
by Caleb Todd on its present site. 

The Union Cotton Mill Company, purchased of Jehiel 
and Lemuel Todd about 1810, the farm property known as 
the factoiy property and built a wooden building and 
operated a cotton spinning factory there until 1828 when 
the stone building was erected and operated by various 
comi)anies and proprietors until 1897. 

The country, in revolutionaiy times, was served by 
Jehiel Todd who was a "Minute Man". He was at the 
burning of Danbury by the British in 1777, and at the 
plundering of New Haven by General Tryon.

ADDITIONAL DATA 665 

Since writing the sketch of Christopher Todd, there 
has been called to the editor's attention that there may be 
a possible question as to just which ship he took passage 
on and which company he was associated with. In the 
sketch as written it is stated that he came to this counti-y 
on the Hector with Mr. John Davenport's company which 
set sail from London. This may be true, for John Fiske 
states in "The Beginnings of New England" that Daven- 
port "in concert with Eaton (Theophilus) organized a 
scheme of emigration that included men from Yorkshire, 
Hertfordshire and Kent", and as Pontefract is situated in 
Yorkshire, he may have been one of these men. On the 
other hand, Christopher Todd may have sailed from Hull, 
for in the "History of New Haven Colony", Edward E. At- 
water, the author, states that "Ezekiel Rogers, a minister 
of high standing in Yorkshire, having embarked at Hull 
on the Humber, with a company who personally knew him 
and desired to enjoy his ministry, arrived in Boston late 
in the summer 1638. 

From this account it seems that through the repre- 
sentations of Davenport and Eaton, Rogers and his fol- 
lowers came to an agreement whereby they were to re- 
move to New Haven and some of them started for that 
colony immediately. They went by water and encountered 
a heavy storm during which they were cast upon a sand 
bar where they remained until the next high tide. They 
were two weeks on the way. A full account may be found 
in the above mentioned histoi-y on pages 81-83. 

With which of the two companies Christopher came 
to this country the editor does not know positively. Both 
of them were composed of a very desirable people, con- 
taining men of education, means and influence and were 
gladly welcomed on their arrival.
